Description: Lancaster County’s rich historical heritage is the theme of this particular scrapbook. The newspaper clippings record the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission’s project for displaying historical markers at important sites throughout the county at places such as Ephrata Cloister. The book, through newspaper clippings, shows Lancaster City’s bicentennial and the events that occurred during the celebration and the Penn Square Treaty. Abraham Lincoln’s Lancaster visit was a focus in some articles. Other locations of prominence mentioned in several articles throughout the book are the Grubb Estate and Steinman Hardware Company. Articles also mention social issues that compliment the 1940s time frame, such as the ongoing debate about women in the workplace. Edward Shippen is mentioned in some articles.
