Overview

Lancaster, Ohio, 1800-2000; Frontier Town to Edge City by David R. Contosta

Contosta (history, Chestnut Hill College) tells the story of one American town as it has evolved over a 200-year period. Looks at various factors such as location, technology, local leaders, and historic preservation to explain why Lancaster has remained a small but relatively successful community for 20 decades, and discusses the town's transformation in recent times to part town, part city, and part suburb, a phenomenon that is emerging in hundreds of older communities throughout the US. Includes about 100 b&w recent and historical photos of landmarks and architecture. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
