Among Lancaster’s architectural beauties is the Sehner-Ellicott-von-Hess House, a charming 17th century house located right in the middle of downtown area. This house was designed for Andrew Ellicott, the first Surveyor General of the United States. The Georgian style cottage was the genius of German architect Gottlieb Sehner. The design visible today is a product of restoration activities from 1978 to 1981. This house takes visitors back to the 17th century, when Lancaster was playing an important role in the history of Pennsylvania. There are very few buildings in the county that can resurrect the images of the erstwhile century with the intensity of this house. Today, it houses the Lancaster County Historic Preservation Trust and is open to visitors checking out the place.
