Photo Contest and Lawrence Lore Vol 2

Are you out there taking those photographs of historic Lawrence County?  
We need your entries by Tuesday June 10--4-7 pm.  Bring them to the museum.  Judging will take place on Thursday, and all photographs will be on display at Essentials on the Square Friday.  Check out the winners!  For contest rules see the website www.lawrencelore.org.

Lawrence Lore Vol 2 is HERE!  
If you loved the book, Lawrence Lore Vol 1 then get ready for Volume 2. The full story of George Bopp--his murder, the manhunt for his killer, the trial, and the Supreme Court case that followed is featured in this edition, as well as lots of history of the county during the oil boom.  Great for genealogists or just lovers of history.   This book would make a wonderful Father's day gift!  For sale now at the museum or the genealogy library or on -line   www.lawrencelore.org
