C. Emlen Urban, a true legend, designed 600+ commissions with no formal education beyond the age of seventeen. His impact on Lancaster city’s landscape is undeniable. His mastery of the architectural language is unquestionable and his quest for excellence was unparalleled.

Written by architect Gregory J. Scott, FAIA, Urban Legend highlights 25 of C. Emlen Urban’s architectural masterpieces which left an indelible mark on the City of Lancaster. 

On the pages of this book, Scott shares insight he gathered over 7 years of research—collecting from Urban’s personal travel diaries, sketchbooks, and linen drawings—tracking his progression and maturity through seventeen different design styles and eleven building types.
