Mabel Rosenheck's picture

LancasterHistory is home to a rich and diverse collection of books, archival documents, artifacts, photographs, and other resources covering nearly 300 years of life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Thanks to the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, we are pleased to offer three research fellowship programs targeting educators, community groups, and academic scholars. The collections at LancasterHistory can aid those pursuing the study of virtually all themes and events in American history, Pennsylvania history, and the history of Lancaster County. Past fellows have used our collections in research on the material culture of Early America, Pennsylvania German communities, James Buchanan, Thaddeus Stevens, the history of abolition and slavery, and other topics.
