Lock Collecting

Lock collectors often discover that they share the same start up story... "I thought I was the only one who collected locks!". The Lancaster Lock Show busts that myth!

The lock collecting hobby takes on many different forms. The variety of lock types is staggering. Some collectors focus on the mechanical aspect, others the aesthetic, still others focus in on a certain type or brand of lock. The hobby is completely scalable to your budget. Collectible locks range in price from under $10 to several thousand dollars.

Historic Lancaster

Lancaster, Pennsylvania is broadly known for the rich farming heritage of the Amish and Mennonite settlers from Europe. You might be surprised to learn that over the past 150 years there have been more than a dozen lock manufacturers based in Lancaster! Sadly, none of these companies make locks in Lancaster anymore. However, because of the enduring materials that antique locks where constructed from, many of the locks have survived! These intricate little devices are historic reminders of times long past. Whether you collect locks, like to browse antiques, or just want to come to historic Lancaster County, we welcome you to make the Lancaster Lock Show part of your visit! More Lancaster...
