Once home to Dr. Samuel Potter, this elegant building now houses the Lancaster Historical Society. Originally built along Broadway in 1895, it was moved to Clark Street in the 1940s and used as the town library until 1973. One of the many architecturally significant buildings in the village, the structure features a round porch and widow's walk. The museum's collection includes artifacts and memorabilia pertaining to the town of Lancaster, including a collection of items made at the old Lancaster glass factory. The historical society also operates a one-room schoolhouse, located at William Street and Bowen Road. – Christine A. Smyczynski
