New Jersey 350

The State of New Jersey celebrated 350 years in 2014.  As part of the celebration, The Lawrence Historical Society published a set of seven articles about Lawrence history.  In addition to appearing in this space, printed copies were made available at society events and public buildings in the township.  The 2014 articles are the first seven in the list below.  The articles toward the bottom of the list are reprints of a set done by the township's Historical and Aesthetic Committee in 1964 as part of the New Jersey 300 celebration.  These articles were made possible through a grant from the Mercer County Culture and Heritage Commission.
