10th Anniversary Weekend

Print PDF

On May 5, 2000, the Lawrence Historical Society celebrated the restoration of the 1761 Brearley House, and this year we will do so again. The $700,000 needed to restore the historic house gave us all a beautiful 18th century Georgian farmhouse. In the interval, the house has served as headquarters for the Lawrence Historical Society, welcomed hundreds of visitors at its monthly open house tours, seen ten years of second grade class tours from Eldridge Park School,  been the scene of seven archeological digs and hosted countless more celebrants every New Year’s Eve at our wildly popular Hogmanay bonfire.

This year, the Lawrence Historical Society will mark the tenth anniversary with two events.  On Friday evening, May 21, a benefit cocktail party and silent auction will raise much-needed funds for the continuing care of this old house.  On Saturday, May 22, from eleven to three, we will hold a Free Family Fair.
