About Lancaster

Lancaster is located in the northcentral part of South Carolina, just south of the North Carolina state line. Situated 10 miles east of I-77 near the middle of Lancaster County, the City of Lancaster is the ideal spot to serve as the county seat.

Known as the Red Rose City, it was settled in the 1700s by pioneers from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In turn, the Pennsylvanians traced their city's founders to English areas under the House of Lancaster, which had a red rose as its emblem

The Houses of Lancaster and York (represented by a white rose) battled each other for the English Crown in the late 1400s in a conflict most history students will recall as the "War of the Roses."

The city still goes by its nickname and uses the a red rose as a city symbol. Here is a map of the Lancaster area.
