About Lancaster

The history of Lancaster, CA begins with the Southern Pacific Railroad, a project which was completed in 1876. The railroad, which went from San Francisco and ended in Los Angeles, had a water stop in Lancaster. The reason Lancaster was chosen for this purpose is because the water had become known as being especially pure. This encouraged people to begin building around the city and it became a booming town by the year 1890. To add to this city's good fortunes it became part of the California gold rush, at least a later version of it in 1898. Someone found gold in Lancaster's hills and people rushed into town to begin their quest for their riches. Lancaster is also home to the largest Borax mine in the world which was also discovered in 1898. To be the biggest in the world is an accomplishment that far outweighs all others. Over the years the city of Lancaster has made great strides in improving its image. One of its claims to fame is that it has managed to bring its crime rate down by 24% last year. They have succeeded in accomplishing this goal with a joint effort between the city's citizens and the Sheriff's department.

Several news outlets, such as CNN and KTLA, have showcased their efforts in news stories. With this type of widespread coverage of the city it is easy to see why people would search the Lancaster, CA yellow pages with the possibility of moving to the city. The Lancaster, CA yellow pages contain real estate agents who are ready to help people find their next homes. Once more people begin to move into Lancaster they may also want to open their own businesses.

This is a city that has been growing impressively over the years and it does not appear that the growth is getting ready to slow down.
