November 17 New Exhibit Opens

 On Sunday, November 17, 2019, the newest Lawrence County Historical Society exhibition at the History Center on the Lawrenceville Square will open at 1:00 p.m.  Mark your calendars.

The new exhibits will feature farming in the county and the lives of farm families. There will be artifacts that you would expect to find in early barns, and artifacts that farm women would have used in their homes.

If your ancestors arrived before oil was discovered, they were probably farmers.  A new publication will be for sale containing many stories and old photographs such as the early farms, horse-drawn implements, and the history of organizations related to farming. This book will make a perfect Christmas present.
