Collection Overview

Biography / History
George Lancaster, a native of New Hampshire, moved to Kentucky in his youth and opened a dry goods business in 1853. Thirty years later, he built the Lancaster Hotel in Georgetown. The hotel was managed by W.A. Rodgers, whose wife was named Pearl.
Scope and Content
The Lancaster family photographs (dated circa 1880-1890; 1.5 cubic feet; 5 boxes) contains many cartes de visite, cabinet cards, various sized albumen and printing-out paper prints and one cased daguerreotype of children and adults from 1880 until 1890. Most of the images are labeled with a name on the back side of the photograph. It is unclear how the individuals in the images are related to the Lancaster family. There are pictures of the front side of the Lancaster Hotel in Georgetown, Kentucky. Almost every image was taken inside a studio in Lexington, Kentucky as indicated on the back side of the photographs.
