The Lawrence County Historical Society held a ribbon cutting Sunday April 17, 2016 to celebrate the opening of its new research library located at 1100 Lexington Avenue in Lawrenceville.  Julia Ladner donated the building to the Society to provide space needed to house the growing research collections.
