Southeast view of the City of Lancaster in 1978

If you love old maps like I do, then you will enjoy this one from A Child’s Guide to Lancaster County by Gerald S. Lestz.

A Child’s Guide to Lancaster County

Published in 1978, this map shows the City of Lancaster from the southeast “with some of its buildings and places of interest.” The caption in the bottom right corner reads:

“Lancaster is rich in the churches, homes, buildings, and warehouses that reflect its history. Too many of them have already been destroyed. If the next generation is to enjoy Lancaster’s heritage, we must learn to appreciate what still remains.”
