Lancaster Stockyards – Office Park Transformation Under Way
Central Penn Business Journal reports on Lancaster Stockyards progress.
Waiting for opening ceremonies to begin at the Lancaster Stockyards office park, former site co-owner Zane Kauffman remembered the glory days.
“We had so many cattle at times, we didn’t have housing for all of them,” said the 86-year-old, who began working there in 1946.
The Lancaster Stockyards, opened in 1895, once were the largest in the East. Cattle, sheep and pigs were brought in by the thousands and sold in daily auctions. But by the early 2000s the stockyards had become a defunct, decaying eyesore, the victim of a changing economy and competition from much larger Western operations.
