Lime Spring Farm began as a family farm in 1720, when Peter Lehman built the original house. Since then, nine generations have occupied the farm and buildings have been added. Most recently, Lime Spring Farm has been a popular wedding venue and corporate meeting site. Lancaster-based Oak Tree Development Group has purchased Lime Spring Farm and plans to develop the property adjacent to the historic site as a mixed use residential, retail, commercial and light-industrial project. Oak Tree Development has pledged that it will not demolish any Lime Spring Farm historic structures and will work to create an appearance “reminiscent of the character of Rohrerstown.”

The Gourmet Gala, the primary fund raiser for the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County, also will feature a live and a silent auction. WGAL-TV news anchor Lori Burkholder will emcee. Tickets for the 2013 Gourmet Gala are $85 for non-Historic Preservation Trust members and $75 for members. They may be purchased by contacting the Historic Preservation Trust at 717-291-5861 or joepatterson@hptrust.org or by visiting www.hptrust.org and purchasing them online.
