The newspaper has been a part of the fabric of life in Lancaster County since 1794, when the Lancaster Journal started publishing in a tavern at the site of the current LNP offices. To mark the 225th anniversary, we have pulled together some file photos of Lancaster Newspapers publishing through the years.

[Photos that belong to our archives are offered for sale; those from other sources are not.]
