candi trans 65hMany talented Lancastrians have been inspired by Lancaster County.  Painters and inventors, writers and photographers - they viewed the beauty that surrounded them everyday, and not only "saw" their environment, they became captivated by it. These individuals dedicated their time and talent and made it their mission to express their appreciation of Lancaster in their life's work. Augustus Beck painted the landscape of Lancaster and exposed to the world the beauty that he saw. Lloyd Mifflin became a poet and recited his passion and love for the Susquehanna River in his poems. S.S. Haldemann loved the natural environment and fauna of this community and documented his findings and his exuberance in his journals. All of these individuals expressed their love of Lancaster County in their work.  However, these individuals did not only "take" from their community— they also gave something back. Their artwork, their inventions, their research, their poems—these individuals enriched our history and society and made Lancaster a community of attainable dreams and imagination.
