Welcome to the official website for Lancaster, MA. Lancaster was incorporated in 1653, making it the oldest town in Worcester County. Today, Lancaster retains a sense of history with old houses scattered throughout the community and a church designed by Charles Bulfinch on the Town Green. Home to Atlantic Union College, apple orchards, farms, historic sites, ponds, and parks, Lancaster is a wonderful place to live and work.
Lancaster is located in North Central Massachusetts on Routes 2 and I-190, and is close to Route 495. Large tracts of land are still available off of Route 2 as this area is just now beginning to be developed.
