To commemorate the county’s 300th birthday, Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society and 1719 Hans Herr House and Museum are sponsoring a yearlong celebration to honor the county and its people, past and present.
Many of the events scheduled are free. A few have fees and some of those are fundraisers that will pay for the construction of an Eastern Woodlands Indian longhouse on the Hans Herr property. Another goal of the celebration is to recognize the rich cultural diversity of those who call Lancaster County home today, through traditions, food and music.
Events include cooking and quilting demonstrations, lectures, concerts, bike rides, field trips, festivals and tours. There will even be a self-guided Scavenger Hunt to historic sites in Lancaster County.
