Reigart’s Landing is not just a name but a piece of history in our beloved city. The name first appeared around the 1820’s when Adam Reigart Jr. established a landing to unload goods that had traveled from the Susquehanna River to the Conestoga River, arriving into the city of Lancaster by wooden bridges or ferries. In April of 1829, Adam Reigart Jr. secured a state legislative act regulating inspection of liquor and wood when shipped by the Conestoga Navigation Company to its landing place at the foot of Strawberry Street. This area is now the Lancaster County Park and Reigart’s Landing townhome community. It led to the forward thinking and commerce-based belief that is at the heart of every Lancastrian.
Reigart’s Landing indeed helped establish a lumberyard and several slate yards, but also became a central location where coal, flour, and whiskey were all unloaded and moved to many factories and merchants within the city. The dream of Adam Reigart Jr. to see a new gate for goods entering the county is what we in Lancaster are all about.
Almost 200 years later the beautiful, quiet, townhome community, named after one pioneer of commerce and trade, lends itself to the new pioneers of the city. The exterior façade of these homes tastefully tips its hat to the lumberyards of years gone by that previously inhabited the land. With just three more townhomes to be built to complete the community and plans for a condominium to join the cedar homes, Adam Reigart Jr. would smile with pride. His once absurd dream to use the river as a viable means of shipping is now home to an eclectic community that thrives together. The area provides its residents with miles of hiking and walking trails, and is just a few minutes from the vibrant life of downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
