History:  

LANCASTER is a city on the border of Poppleton and Granville Townships; it was incorporated as a village on September 30, 1905; the post office was first called Lanerow, 1903, changing to Lancaster in 1904 when the Soo Line came through and named for a railroad official believed to have come from Lancashire County, England. The first business was a hotel built by Bernard Johnson, followed by three grain elevators.
