The Lancaster Commercial Historic District is a registered historic district located in Lancaster, Kentucky that was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]

It includes the Garrard County Courthouse, built in 1868, which was the third-built courthouse of the area.

The district was deemed notable as containing "Lancaster's best contiguous collection of buildings illustrating Lancaster's commercial and architectural development. In a six block area there are Federal log and brick structures, Gothic Revival church, Italianate cast iron store fronts, Queen Anne bay windows, and symmetrical Classical Revival detailing."[2]
