1870-1875 Map of Lawrenceville

If you click on the map you should be able to enlarge it and see what the town of Lawrenceville looked like in 1870-1875.

A reader asked  if there was ever a 1,2 and 3rd streets.  The old names for the streets are listed on this map before they were changed in the early 1900's.  If Market street is now 12th, and one counts back east (right side of map) then the eastern most street would be 4th. I am not sure if this is the answer, or even why the town was laid out like this, but it is interesting.
