Lancaster Farm is a small farmers town in the western part of the state of Dunbeg, a couple of miles away from Somerville. the town was founded in 1906 when farmers from the villages surrounding the area moved into the uncultivated hill range of the Lancaster Hills. The town has about 4,000 inhabitants, of which most work in the agricultural business.
the town was founded in 1906 by local farmers. Its population grew enormously in the 1920s when the area was accessed by a freeway built in 1923 leading to Somerville. The town changed its layout from a collection of farms to a prospering towns by building smaller house for the day workers that helped with the harvest and many miscellaneous jobs. Soon a couple of shops were opened and a town council was set up. The first town of west-Dunbeg was inaugarated in 1927 when the population figure had already exceeded 1,400.
the town was home to a secret headquarters of the Nieves department of the combined USA-New Shetland air force. The town itself suffered three casualties when two brothers and a Yarmouth-born commander lost their lives in the Battle of the Pacific. After the war many Dunbeg and Somerville residents bought second houses in the town and it quickly expanded.
the town has about 4,000 inhabitants. In the 1950s it had approximately 1500-2000 inhabitants. In the following decades the town population grew to 3,600 in 1971 and 4,200 in 1987. After an economic downfall in the area the population declined and in the 2000s it remained stable, with between 3,800 and 4,200 inhabitants. The town grew most quickly in periods of economic growth and decluned when a recession hit the area. This was due to the instable farming business that relied on sellers fron New Guildford.
Despite its ever-changing population figure the towns racial makeup changed not a lot over the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century. Most inhabitants are white Europeans. About 21% of the town inhabitants are of other races, mostly native. The town population is mostly protestant although a catholic minority of about 50 churchgoers remained in place until the 1980s. Common languages are English and Krai.
