Description   EN   

Lancaster County Courthouse is a building that is attributed to the architect Robert Mills. "In continuous use as a courthouse since its completion in 1828, it features fine reeded woodwork and vaulted ceilings. A series of double barrel brick vaults supports the second floor and forms the ceiling of the first.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1973.

It may be included within the Lancaster Downtown Historic District, also listed on the National Register.

At approximately 5 a.m. on Aug. 4, 2008, the courthouse was heavily damaged, but not destroyed by fire caused by arson, and will be rebuilt.

On September 19, 2008, a local 17-year-old, Martavious Carter, admitted to setting the fire while being interviewed for other crimes, he had recently committed.

The courthouse has the distinction of being the site of the last witch trials to take place in the United States.

Thanks, sseegars, for setting this up!
