On May 16, 1730, Andrew Hamilton and his wife, Ann, conveyed from their private estate in Lancaster, PA, a 120-foot square lot of land that fronted onto what is now West King Street and extends north from that point. This conveyance of land was made in trust for erecting, keeping, or holding a market within the town of Lancaster.
Just when an actual "market" was first built on this plot is unclear, but the earliest references to a "market house" were made in 1757.
In 1795, Old City Hall was built on the present site of the Market House, and is currently located on the east end of the same plot.
