Architects have completed their design of the permanent donor walls that will be at the main entrances of the new LancasterHistory.org building. Elegant etchings in glass will greet members, donors and visitors every day at the new building reminding all that generosity made this wonderful facility possible.
There will be a special "Major Donors Wall" of glass thanking all donors who make gifts of $3,000 and more (Remember, gifts may be pledged over a period of up to 5 years). All donors of $500 and more will be recognized as "Founding Donors" and their names will be included on a special etched wall of glass that will be a permanent feature in the new building.
There are still many wonderful naming opportunities for donors who make gifts of $10,000 and more. Gifts may be made in honor of or in memory of a loved one, partner or friend. Please contact Robin Sarratt for more details at (717) 392-4633, ext 117
LancasterHistory.org thanks the many people who have already pledged to this campaign, and to those who are considering gifts as we close in on our campaign goal. Campaign efforts will continue through 2012, so you still have time to be a part of history!

Welcome to Family Records and Other Intrigues. I'm Emily Jones, a rising junior at Grove City College and a summer intern at LancasterHistory.org. I am an English major, which may be why I like history for the stories it has to tell. I don't know Sir Winston Churchill's dates of birth and death or his specific contributions to the war effort, but I do know that he said many scandalous things and had a penchant for cats. My blog is about the gossipy, quirky, human things I find as I do historical research this summer.
Welcome to Learning, Living, Lancaster: a blog dedicated to bringing you both intriguing, long lost, & little known stories and information surrounding objects in the LancasterHistory.org collection! My name is Emily Miller, and I am a M.A. graduate student from the University of Delaware and a summer intern for LancasterHistory.org. Two new blog entries are posted every week! I hope you enjoy these curious tales of the collection!
The staff and volunteers of the Archives Department at LancasterHistory.org never know what they'll find when working on the documents and records in the collections. Fortunately, when they do discover something noteworthy they are very willing to share!
Because pictures are worth a thousand words, but sometimes they need an interpreter.
You know that cliché about a picture being worth a thousand words? Ok, well, imagine the stories going on in my head after cataloging several hundred photos every single day!
One Young Lady, One Old House, Two Hundred Years of History
I’m Jennifer Walton, Assistant Director of President James Buchanan's Wheatland, and I love an old President and his old house! Over the past six years, I’ve learned quite a lot about both, and I would love to share it with you!
