A Look Back at Water Ways-2016

People are drawn to water, and the Historical Society certainly found that to be true, in 2016, when the traveling Smithsonian Exhibit, Water Ways came to Lawrenceville. Check out a video that was made showing the exhibits and the volunteers who helped to make it happen.

This book, a Special Edition of Lawrence Lore, consists of a collection of articles and stories that all have a common theme of water and its effect on life in Lawrence County. Almost 100 pages of historic aspects of water related topics that include floods, migration and early mills, steamboats, the "pearl rush", Lake Lawrence, Stivers Springs and many more.
