Our City History


The first settlement made in the Lancaster community was in September 1844 by Roderick Rawlins. Mr. Rawlins and other members of his party had secured "headrights" from the Republic of Texas. A few years later, M. M. Miller, Sr., a son-in-law of Roderick Rawlins, established a trading post settlement about one mile north of Lancaster at Pleasant Run. It became a main trading center for south Dallas County.


In 1847, Mr. A Bledsoe arrived in the community and later purchased a tract of land where the present town of Lancaster is located. In the spring of 1852 Bledsoe laid out and surveyed the townsite of Lancaster, Texas. The site was plotted and planned after Lancaster, Kentucky, where Mr. A Bledsoe was born in 1801. Lancaster was first incorporated in 1853.


This was the beginning of the present town of Lancaster which eventually absorbed Pleasant Run and other nearby settlements. A later incorporation was voted in 1882, to meet with changes in State laws.
