George Field ID card

George Field ID of James Hesler, an employee of the Post Engineers, 1942


            The Lawrence County Historical Society will hold its monthly program meeting on Monday, October 24, at 7:00 p.m., at the History Center on the corner of 12th and State Streets in Lawrenceville.  Ryan Cox, minister at Pleasant Ridge Christian Church, will be the guest speaker.  A former high school history teacher, Cox will discuss how events in Europe resulted in the migration of a family whose descendants helped to found Pleasant Ridge in 1834, and 180 years later, continue to be active members of the congregation.

            The meeting free and open to the public.  

Hats off to all our volunteers who have agreed to help keep the History Center open on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  9-3
