Exhibition Opening: “Lancaster in the ’60s”

Exhibition Opening: “Lancaster in the ’60s”


Lancaster in the ’60s examines the issues of conflict, resolution, and protest against the backdrop of four pivotal decades—the 1660s, 1760s, 1860s, and 1960s—in Lancaster County’s history. Follow the stories of ordinary Lancastrians who lived through extraordinary times in LancasterHistory’s latest exhibition, Lancaster in the 60s.

Lancaster in the ’60s opens Friday, November 22, 2019 to the public. Admission to the exhibition is free on opening day, November 22. Donations, in person or online through the Extraordinary Give, are gratefully accepted. After November 22, admission is available at Visitor Services with the purchase of a General Admission ticket (includes a tour of Pres. James Buchanan’s Wheatland) or Galleries-Only ticket. LancasterHistory members are admitted for free.

Lancaster in the ’60s would not be possible without the support of the following community-minded partners: The National Endowment for the Humanities, The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission, Willow Valley Communities, Saxton & Stump, Armstrong World Industries, Franklin & Marshall College, and Clair Global. Educational activities are supported by the Abigail L. Longenecker Memorial Foundation. LancasterHistory thanks all sponsors for their support and generosity.
