New Jersey is 350 in 2014
The State of New Jersey is celebrating 350 years in 2014. As part of this celebration, The Lawrence Historical Society has published a set of seven articles about Lawrence history. In addition to appearing in this space, printed copies will be made available at society events and public buildings in the township. The 2014 articles are marked NEW below. The articles toward the bottom of the list are reprints of a set done in 1964 as part of the New Jersey 300 celebration. These articles were made possible through a grant from the Mercer County Culture and Heritage Commission.
