If you ask anyone what they hear of when you say ‘Lancaster’, majority of the time they will say Amish. That stereotype is slowly dying. Sure there are many Amish communities in Lancaster County, but that takes up only a chunk of what Lancaster is about. Lancaster City is a beautiful city that is rapidly evolving. Lancaster city does not resemble the Amish communities that surround it.
