Lancaster A Charming Village

Stop By for a Visit

The third oldest incorporated village in Erie County, Lancaster’s proud past can still be felt today on the streets in the heart of this charming village. Here visitors can enjoy a latte, stop into a classic toy shop, enjoy a meal or browse the shelves of retailers — some that have been around for generations, others that are recent additions to Lancaster’s shopping scene. The anchor of the village is a 350-seat Victorian era theater dating from 1894 that features a variety of entertainment options throughout the year.
