The Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society preserves and interprets the culture and context of Anabaptist-related faith communities connected to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania—both those first settlers and the groups that followed later.

We seek to be a gathering place where people can explore stories, ideas, and legacy—for themselves and with each other.

Lancaster Roots combines the events of Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society and the 1719 Hans Herr House & Museum.

Through public presentations, food, music, presentationsfield trips, classes and stories, these events reveal Lancaster and its people: their stories, culture, and history.
