In 1771, President George Washington spent two nights in Lancaster in the home of James Ingram. That home was also Lancaster’s very first courthouse.
The second courthouse was built in 1828 on Main Street. This courthouse sported a basement, first floor and second floor.
This courthouse served 180 years. The latter years beyond its suitability to serve and there was no funds with which to build a new, adequate courthouse.
Then, in 2008, a 17-year old boy attempted to burn the ancient courthouse, which was now listed as a National Historic Landmark.
