LHC Visits Local Neighborhood Association
Last night archivist Jennifer Williams attended the monthly Prospect Hill/Back Bay Neighborhood Association meeting. While there she gave a twenty minute talk on the history of Lawrence, as well as the goings-on at the Lawrence History Center. Her talk touched on many different aspects of Lawrence history, from the land Daniel Saunders bought near Bodwell Falls to the immigration of many different groups of people to the city. The audience was very enthusiastic, and especially enjoyed viewing the photographs Jennifer brought of the Venerini Sisters, their convent, Holy Rosary Church, the Concordia Social Club, and Daniel Saunders. It was a successful night and several members of the association expressed their desire to visit the LHC or donate materials. The LHC is always very excited to connect with the community in order to make them aware not only of the importance of Lawrence's history, but also the resources available for people to learn about that history. We look forward to visiting other local groups in the future!
