Welcome to Lancaster, South Carolina, the Red Rose City.
Established in the mid 1700's by Scots-Irish and English settlers from the region of the famous House of Lancaster, this area was viewed as a "Garden of Eden." Over the years, the area has hosted two wars on its soil and has nurtured several famous native sons, among them Andrew Jackson, seventh president of the United States; William R. Davie, founder of the University of North Carolina; Stephen D. Miller, South Carolina's twenty-fifth governor; Dr. J. Marion Sims, the father of modern gynecology; Elliott White Springs, textile industrialist; Nina Mae McKinney, actress and Broadway star; Charles Duke, astronaut and moon-walker; and Jim Hodges, 114th governor of South Carolina.
