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.
REMINDER: TOWN CLEAN UP DAYS THIS WEEKEND! MAY 2ND AND 3RD
It’s time for Lancaster's Spring Cleaning. Saturday or Sunday May 2nd or 3rd please stop by the DPW Barn at 435 Center Bridge Rd (also the location of the Lancaster Recycling Center) between 10 AM and 2 PM to pick up the official yellow bags, water, and a map with your expected route. You will leave bags filled with roadside litter along your route for one of our volunteer pickup truck drivers to collect.
If you cannot wait to get started, bags are available at the Town Clerk’s Office or email email@example.com. We also need volunteers to pass out bags, and anyone with a pick-up truck is especially needed to help collect full bags. If you can help in any way (pick up roadside litter, you have a pickup truck and can collect filled bags along the road, or you can help staff the table at the DPW barn), please call Bob Lidstone at 978-368-7747.
