Lititz is nestled in the heart land of rich farming country in Lancaster County. The earliest settlers were Swiss-German Mennonites in 1710 who fled religious persecution in Europe. They were quickly followed by the Moravians and Amish. In Lititz they built old stone mills, wooden covered bridges and log homes. Many 18th Century Lititz buildings have been wonderfully restored and can be enjoyed as you walk through town. Numerous local farms have been owned perpetually by the same families for 200 years.
Lancaster County has thrived over the years and now is home to people who speak over 26 different languages. A strong work ethic and a boundless spirit of generosity from individuals and community service organizations has maintained and strengthened the economy and ecology of Lititz.
