Built in 1828, this facility is a significant work of Robert Mills who is best known as the designer of the Washington Monument. The courthouse had been in use as the county’s courthouse for over 180 years until an arsonist attempted to burn the building in August 2008. The courthouse was renovated to its original grandeur and now houses the Lancaster County Welcome Center & Gift Shop and the county's Historical Museum, open Mon-Wed-Thus: 10 am-2pm, other times by appointment.
