Just a block west of Franklin & Marshall College in Northwest Lancaster City is a neighborhood commonly known as State Street.
Most houses in this area were built in the early 1920s and sport classy architectural features spanning from Tudor homes to single and multi-family units with mainly brick exteriors. Just a short walk or bike ride to Downtown Lancaster, this tree-lined neighborhood is a serene place many locals love to call home.
Students in this neighborhood have the option to attend public school through the School District of Lancaster (SDoL) or private school. State Street is only a few blocks away from Lancaster Country Day School, a private preschool-12th grade, coed college preparatory school.
The School District of Lancaster features a diverse student body. They are committed to being a high-performing district in teaching, learning, student achievement, and future-readiness. The public school district's high school is one of thirteen Pennsylvanian schools that offer the challenging pre-university International Baccalaureate curriculum in addition to its award-winning arts program and impressive career training.
State Street residents are only two blocks from Buchanan Park, which is a stellar space for those who appreciate quaint, outdoor scenery and large grassy areas for picnics and recreational activities! Buchanan Park is also home to Beau’s Dream Dog Park where furry friends can romp around in a splash pad or chase tennis balls launched by a tennis ball tree. The park is even separated for large and small dogs to play with similarly-sized companions! Less than a mile south, the Lancaster Community Park is another outdoor recreation area with a children’s playground, exercise trails, soccer fields, and baseball and softball diamonds.
When it comes to cuisine, this neighborhood does not fall short. Grab a morning donut at Beiler’s Doughnuts, coffee from Mean Cup, or head into the city for a weekly pick-up of local seasonal produce, meat, and baked goods, at Lancaster Central Market. The shopping and dining options are seemingly endless, and many Lancaster favorite restaurants like The Fridge, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, Splits & Giggles, and LUCA Wood-Burning Italian Kitchen are within a mile of the State Street neighborhood.
For history buffs, U.S. President James Buchanan’s Wheatland Estate is 2 miles away. For shopping enthusiasts, a 2-3 mile drive to Lancaster’s Park City Center shopping mall and The Shoppes at Belmont, which include national retailers like Whole Foods, Lane Bryant, Ulta, and Nordstrom Rack, will provide everything needed for a successful shopping spree.
Providing ease of access to the fun of Downtown Lancaster, the convenience of major Routes like 283 and 30, and the beloved local shops and restaurants, State Street is definitely worth checking out.
