Downtown Lancaster offers wonderful Theater and Gardens

The beautiful and historic Fulton Opera House is closing their season with “Phantom” starting June 3rd and running through July 4th. This version is from the book written by Arthur Kopit and the Music & Lyrics created by Maury Yeston. The Fulton Opera House, considered to be the nation's oldest continuously operating theatre, is one of only eight theatres to be named a National Historic Landmark. We have enjoyed all of the shows and look forward to opening night of the Phantom.

For those interested in gardens and historic homes, put the House and Garden Tour on your calendar. It is June 12th & 13th and this year visitors will have exclusive access to both the home and garden of unique Lancaster locations. The "House and Garden Tour" will feature the hosts' creative expression in gardening, as well as in interior design, restoration and remodeling projects, and art and antique collecting. Hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (rain or shine). Tickets are $18 when purchased the day of the tour. We have enjoyed seeing the homes in previous tours and again look forward to getting some fresh air and seeing the homes and gardens on this year’s tour.
