From Falls to Factories: Lawrence & New Beginnings

In 1845 there was no town of Lawrence, Massachusetts. There was Andover and there was Methuen, and there was the Merrimack River separating the two. So what happened? Why did the city of Lawrence start, and who was responsible for making it happen? We’ll tell the story of how Lawrence came to be a great center of industry, and just who made it into one. Come see and hear how the marvelous transformation occurred, and learn how Lawrence grew from the “New City on the Merrimack” to the “Immigrant City.”
