“These properties represent the positive work that is taking place across Lancaster County,” said Lisa Horst, president of the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County. “We are fortunate to have one of the largest inventories of historic buildings of any area our size in the country.  Historic Preservation Trust volunteers are working to retain the historic character of our county because that character is one of the key attractions for visitors and residents alike.  Everyone seems to love historic preservation once it has occurred.  The Preservation Trust brings together property owners, municipal officials, developers and others to identify and protect homes, barns, bridges, mills and other structures that are historically significant.”

Tickets for the annual meeting and banquet are $65 per person for members of the Historic Preservation Trust and members of the Central Pennsylvania Preservation Society, and $75 for non-members.  Tables of ten are available for $500.  Tickets may be ordered by calling 717-291-5861 or sending an e-mail to joepatterson@hptrust.org.
