Built in the 1920s by Michele DeGeorge, the historic Lancaster Hotel has never been sold. For decades, the property remained one of several assets passed down to DeGeorge’s descendants—that three granddaughters and their respective children, sixteen great grandchildren, collectively owned and managed. That is, until August 2009. It was then that it was decided that the properties be divided, and two of the three granddaughters, Ursula Lusk and her sister, Michelene Toomey, expressed interest in sole ownership of the hotel.
