The History of Lancaster High School
Lancaster (population approximately 100) is located in southeastern Illinois in northwestern Wabash
County. Lancaster sits in a true country setting on County Road 11 at County Road E 640. The hamlet of Lancaster
does not appear to be more than a few blocks long and wide. The estimate of 100 for the population is possibly overstated.
Lancaster is not listed as an official Illinois town. Its history and the history of the Lancaster
school system is in need of research. We can only, at this point, guess as to the history of the school.
It was probably established in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Lancaster High School likely served the small town and
surrounding farm kids for more than five decades. Our guess is that it was in the late 1940s that Lancaster High School
may have closed her doors.
We believe that the kids of Lancaster now attend school in Mt. Carmel as part of the Wabash School District.
