THE SMITHSONIAN IS COMING TO LAWRENCEVILLE
The Lawrence County Historical Society has been chosen to host the newest Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit: Water/Ways. We were notified Friday by the Museum on Main Street, the group in partnership with the Smithsonian Institute and various state councils including Illinois Humanities. Only six Illinois communities were chosen to host this prestigious exhibit and we are proud to be chosen. An official press release will be forthcoming but we wanted to go ahead and share our excitement! There will be lots of planning to do and we will welcome interested volunteers. The exhibit is due to be shown on Sept 3-Oct 16, 2016.
