Reproduction panoramic map of Lancaster, New York, published by Burleigh Litho. Co. in 1892. The village of Lancaster, along Cayuga Creek, became part of the town of Depew when Chauncey Depew established an important railroad line between Lancaster and neighboring village Cheektowaga. The villages grew as one, with the railroad industry dominating and employing thousands.
