Lancaster County is well known for its beautiful farms, rich history, charming towns, Amish communities, farmer’s markets, arts & crafts and enviable quality of life. It’s no surprise that we’re growing.
The Hourglass was formed to champion and facilitate effective growth management in order to make Lancaster County an even better place to live, work and visit. We believe that Lancaster County can have growth and economic prosperity without losing its unique character and enviable quality of life.

NEW DOWNTOWN LANCASTER WEBSITE
A new website designed by the Hourglass to promote tourism in downtown Lancaster. The site captures the unique Lancaster experience by focusing on the downtown’s rich history and all the exciting things to see and do - the art galleries, museums, shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Check it out at visithistoriclancaster.com.
We’re not like other non-profit organizations. We aren’t focused on a single topic or passion. Instead, we concern ourselves with complex legacy issues and how they impact the quality of life in Lancaster County
