Visitor's Center & State Auxiliary Museum
A recommended first stop when visiting Lancaster is the Visitor's Center at 103 N Dallas Avenue, and the State Auxiliary Museum located right next door at 101 N Dallas Avenue. Originally built in 1911, and formally known as the Interurban Building, it served as the home to the Texas Interurban Railway. This facility has welcomed visitors and businesses to Lancaster for over one hundred years! The Interurban Building was home to the Texas Interurban Railway that ran from Waxahachie through Red Oak, Lancaster, and Dallas to Sherman-Denison until the 1950s.
