The latest exhibit at LancasterHistory opened Wednesday night with a bit more fanfare than usual.

Lancaster's own Big Boy Brass performed at LancasterHistory's campus at 230 N. President Ave. to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit about local journalism that coincides with LNP's 225th anniversary.

The band’s set list for the evening included a new arrangement of the “Intelligencer Journal March,” a Sousa-style piece commissioned by the former newspaper and written by local bandleader George Luttenberger in 1951.

The exhibit, “Not Too Rash, Yet Not Fearful: 225 Years of Journalism in Lancaster County,” delves into the history of LNP in particular and the history of local newspapers in general. In addition to a series of historic front pages from various Lancaster newspapers, the exhibit includes text, photographs and illustrations, as well as a selection of artifacts and objects that help tell the story.

The exhibit will be open to the public Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., through Sept. 7. Admission is $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, $8 for ages 11-17 and free for children 10 and under. Tickets include this exhibit and exhibits in four other galleries, plus a tour of President James Buchanan’s Wheatland and a viewing of the new film “Buchanan’s America: A Nation Divided.” For more information, call 717-392-4633 or visit
