Historical Commission


The Historical Commission meets on six Mondays during the year at the township office located at 1240 Maple Avenue. Meetings begin promptly at 6:30pm. To see meeting dates, click here for the municipal meeting calendar.

The Lancaster Township Historical Commission is a committee supporting the Planning Commission. It can advise the Planning Commission on issues; however, the legal codes that apply are already in the township’s zoning and planning codes. The LTHC  acts as an advisor and is primarily an educational group to Lancaster Township residents. Residents are invited to attend the meetings.
