1. Wilder-Hilton House
Inscription.  The house was built by Jonas Wilder in 1780 and served as a place for town and religious meetings as well as an inn for travelers. The Holton family later acquired it and owned it for over a century. In 1964 the Holton family sold the house to the Lancaster Historical society. Today it houses the society's collections and exhibits on town history.
