The City of Lancaster is located in the Southwest corner of Wisconsin. Although a relatively small city, Lancaster has a lot to offer.
Lancaster is surrounded by beautiful wooded hills, fertile agricultural valleys, creeks and rivers and is close to a number of visitor attractions in Southwest Wisconsin. Lancaster is the county seat of Grant County. The county comprises the extreme southwest corner of the state of Wisconsin and the Mississippi River forms the county’s western edge. Lancaster is one of the earliest places where settlement occurred in the state as a result of the discovery of lead in the region in the early years of the nineteenth century.
Lancaster is fortunate to have many exciting historical venues, activities, and shops for you to visit while you are here. The Grant County Courthouse was built in 1902 and was designed by Armand D. Koch in the Classical Revival style of the time. The courthouse is also at the site of the first Civil War monument in the US. The Cunningham Museum is a must see for anyone who enjoys American history. The museum is home to many artifacts from the Civil War. It is a great opportunity to get up close with lost artifacts from the past.
