State Highways 9 and 903, and U.S. Route 521 pass through Lancaster real estate.  The strategic location at the intersection of several highways gives residents of Lancaster SC homes convenient access to amenities in commercial Charlotte NC real estate as well as Myrtle Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.  Charming, historic Lancaster itself is also a shopping and dining destination in the heart of the Olde English District, which includes seven counties in northern South Carolina.  It is a wonderful place to work and play, steeped in old-fashioned Southern hospitality.

Rich with history, settlement in the region dates back to the 1750s when the English entered the "Garden of the Waxhaws," one of three Native American tribes who occupied the area.  Settlers from Lancaster, Pennsylvania who were originally from Lancaster, England brought the red rose, the emblem of the House of Lancaster during England's War of the Roses from 1455 to 1485.

The bustling historic downtown is a popular destination and features many charming inns and eateries.  There are a fascinating variety of locally run shops and national retail stores, enough to enthrall even the most seasoned shopper.
Several buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.  Robert Mills, America's first architect and the designer of the Washington Monument, designed two local buildings including the courthouse and the old jail.  The Old Presbyterian Church, circa 1862, holds graves that date back as early as the War of 1812.  The Springs House and Kilburnie are wonderful examples of colonial architecture.  The L&C Railroad Museum highlights the transporting of products from the Springs Cotton Mill and the custom tailoring of retired rail cars for celebrities.  

Several industrial and commercial parks and transportation hubs also bolster the strong local economy.  Internationally known for housing the corporate headquarters of KMG America, Springs Industries, and Duracell, the city is on the maps for commerce.  Rail service by CSX Railroad, Lancaster & Chester Railway, Charlotte Amtrak Station, Norfolk Southern intermodal rail hub in Charlotte, and air services by Lancaster County Airport and Charlotte-Douglas International Airport promote the movement of goods and business services that are so vital today.
