Franciscus-Carpenter House

Franciscus-Carpenter HouseSurviving as one of Lancaster County’s seven earliest farmsteads, this 1750 farmhouse in West Lampeter Township was slated for demolition to make way for athletic fields. The Preservation Trust worked with a local Citizens Action Committee and a local school district to develop a preservation plan that included subdivision, installation of underground utilities, and complete restoration by a qualified developer. This property was prominently featured in This Old House magazine.
