The Archive Project with LancasterHistory.org – Preserving Armstrong’s Legacy

Community Revitalization –
Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce

In 2016, The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce embarked on its Thrive capital campaign to raise almost $7M to create a community and business hub for the county, on King St., in the center of downtown. The renovated building will house the Chamber as well as a number of non-profits and small businesses to help Lancaster “thrive.” Our ceiling products were specified for the project, and the AWIF joins hundreds of local contributors who have come together to fund the project which opened on schedule in early April 2017.
