Lawrence High School

In 1882 Lawrence lost half its population when Millham, the South Lawrence neighborhood on the Trenton border, seceded to form its own township. Millham’s declaration of independence capped several decades of dynamic growth that was largely ignored by the North Lawrence farmers who ran the township. Today Millham is part of Trenton’s North Ward.  Join us to learn how this thriving industrial neighborhood came into being and how Lawrence lost control of it. Dennis Waters has volunteered as Lawrence Township Historian since 2006, and has presenteda lecture on local history at the annual meeng of the Lawrence Historical Society since 2010.
