About the Area
Lancaster, Ohio is a charming city that is tucked off of the beaten path. On the drive through town, the abundance of farms, fields, and verdant landscapes speak to the area's rural roots and laid-back lifestyle, which charm visitors and residents alike. At the city's center, you'll find a bustling downtown filled with shops, restaurants, and services all packed into historic brick buildings along Main Street. Lancaster truly embodies the best of both worlds: an escape from the big city that is still close enough to access the amenities of Columbus. Welcome home!
