Surplus Vintage Yearbooks


Thanks to the generosity of several donors, we find that we have an abundance of high school yearbooks from Bridgeport and Lawrenceville. We have a set at the research library, and one in storage at the History Center, plus the local public library has a set.  

Many of these yearbooks were donated by yearbook collectors, and by that, I mean persons who have no emotional attachment to any particular yearbook. They were purchased at yard sales, auctions, etc. and then donated to us. While we appreciate every donation, we now find we have an excess of certain “years.”

We treasure the artifacts that donors entrust to us but with that comes a responsibility on our part to preserve and properly store the items.  Archival boxes, proper weight- bearing bookcases, providing the correct temperature for archival storage at the two buildings. . . all that costs money. We receive no tax dollars and operate on the generosity of our members and blog readers so every dollar counts.  

After much discussion, the Board of Directors have agreed to allow our extra yearbooks to be sold as a fundraiser to genealogists or classmates who have lost their yearbooks through the years.  

Let me make myself very clear. Yearbooks donated by individuals with family connections to the yearbook they donated will NOT be sold.  Only the excess yearbooks donated by collectors will be offered for sale.

Yearbooks will be sold for $20 as- is on a “first come- first serve” basis. $5.00 shipping will be added for each one unless the book is picked up in Lawrenceville.


 So if you are looking for a unique Christmas gift of birthday gift for an elderly relative, or if you are a genealogist and need photographs of relatives, or if you are planning a class reunion and need a door prize, consider this offer and help support the Historical Society.


Please contact us at so we may determine if  we have the exact year you want. We will then assist you in ordering.
