ABC 27 and The Lancastrian are reporting on an exciting upgrade to the downtown skyline!
For the first time in its over-130 year history, the corner tower and main stained-glass window of the historic Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church at Manor, W. King, and W. Strawberry streets have been illuminated with spotlights, funded through the Lancaster City Alliance’s Façade Improvement Grant Program. This church is barely three blocks from the future home of Landis Place on King. The steeple is now visible at night from Penn Square, and provides a visible connection between Downtown and the Cabbage Hill neighborhood.
“The Christ Church is a landmark. It’s an architectural landmark in our community. And in fact, it was designed by James Warner, the architect of Central Market,” said Jeremy Young, director of community and economic development with Lancaster City Alliance.
Lancaster is working to make the city safer by lighting up dark areas. It’s one of many ways to enhance neighborhoods.
