lancaster pa: Lancaster PA Real Estate - Winter Wonderland Part II - 02/09/09 12:19 AM

February is usually Lancaster's whitest month and this year(so far) is no exception. What made this particular day, one week ago, so special was that the 4-5 inches of powdered snow stayed in virtually the same position relative to where it landed on structures, trees and the general landscapes around the area due to non-existent wind that day. This was a prime opportunity for photographers all over to shoot lancaster in a rare moment of glory. I hope you enjoy these shots as much as i do.

Lancaster County PA Real Estate


Lancaster County Pennsylvania also known as "Dutch Country" was for the longest time predominately habitated by ""Amish" and Mennonnite farmers who were mostly descendants of the early German and Swiss settlers. This has greatly changed in the last several decades as Lancaster is quickly becoming a major eastern city.  Industry, Commerce and especially Residential Real Estate are booming. The Amish still hold influence over the area and have made their own mark with local favorites such as Love-Lace Manor Bed&Breakfast,Hershey Farm Restaurant, Miller's Smorgasbord Buffet.

lancaster pa: Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate - Lancaster County Communities - School Lane Hills - 11/03/08 10:36 PM
School Lane Hills features incredible architecture by some of the most famous builders in Pennsylvania. It is located close to Lancaster along Marietta Avenue in and around Presidents street and furthermore conveniently within reach of the AMTRAK train station.




School Lane Hills continues to be a sought after suburban neighborhood due to it's lack of traffic through it's streets all of this despite it's proximity to urban areas. This can be attributed to it's natural buffer; Conestoga Creek. It is also in part due to the athletic fields of Marshall and Franklin College.
