 Now online... Old Aerial Photographs of Lancaster County. Here are links to the aerial photographs we have in our office.

1990 Flight (Scale 1'=1320')

1980 Flight (Scale 1'=1320')

1966 Flight (Scale 1'=1667')

1955 Flight

1937 Flight

When we scanned in some of the aerials there maybe some lines on them- we are sorry if that is on a map that you need. Also the 1955 and 1937 only have a few photos in that flight. The maps are large so it may take a few minutes to download the ones you need.

** If you are using Google Chrome you cannot access the files- please use another program.
