Lancaster (pronounced "LANK-aster") retains the look and feel of a small town with many historic Victorian homes. During the Civil War, a pistol factory here produced the huge Colt .44 Dragoon revolver. Memorabilia of the foundry and gun factory are found in the city library. The city is home to Cedar Valley College and the University of North Texas-Dallas. The 18-hole Country View Golf Club offers golf for all skill levels.
