Thanks!

Default Images from the Downtown District

Renovated Texas Electric Company & Interurban Building
When electric home lighting came to Lancaster in 1911, residents could pay their electric bills here or purchase a ticket to ride the Interurban electric trolley. Today, the building houses a Visitors Center, the local Chamber of Commerce, and a Texas State Auxiliary Museum.


Former Lancaster High School (1923-1965) Building
Currently the Lancaster ISD Administration Building.

Great photos my man.
Thanks so much for the compliment!

I enjoyed exploring the south side of town.

Default A little Lancaster history in pictures

This set of photos includes a few historically significant landmarks and notable buildings in the city.

W.A. Strain House as seen from Lancaster-Hutchins Road.
Built in 1896, the farmstead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Strain family played a prominent role in the early history of Lancaster and the property is still inhabited by the heirs of W.A. Strain. Additional information can be found here.


Rocky Crest School
This historical marker was unveiled during a September 8 dedication ceremony at the former Rocky Crest School. During segregation, African American students from Lancaster and the surrounding areas attended Rocky Crest. At one point, the school served roughly 18% of all minority students in Dallas County. Now known as the J.D. Hall Learning Center, the campus is Lancaster ISD's alternative school.


Pleasant Run Community
This historic marker commemorates the community of Pleasant Run, established in the late 1840s. Pleasant Run was located north of the original town of Lancaster, which was founded several years later in 1852. The name lives on today through Pleasant Run Road, a major east-west thoroughfare running through the southern Dallas County cities of Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Lancaster, and Wilmer.


Regions Bank Building
The Pleasant Run marker is located in the front parking lot of Regions Bank. Standing 56 feet high, this four-story office building completed in 1974 is the closest thing we have to a skyscraper.


Grain Elevator
This old grain elevator is located in a largely undeveloped area of eastern Lancaster near the border with Wilmer. Visible for several miles around, it is a true relic of the past.


I also photographed more neighborhoods throughout the city, but I'll post them later.
