Lawrence History Center

Lawrence History Center

Founded in 1978 as the Immigrant City Archives, the mission of the Lawrence History Center is to collect, preserve, share, and animate the history and heritage of Lawrence and its people.

The Lawrence History Center is located in downtown Lawrence in the former Essex Company complex, a property listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our collections include the business and planning records of the Essex Company, photographs and glass plate negatives, digitally mastered oral histories, mayoral papers, church records, organizational records from local businesses and agencies, and an array of family and individual records that document the ethnically diverse and intellectually challenging nature of Lawrence. We engage the community by employing these materials through exhibits, symposia, educational programs, and research services to foster understanding of the interaction of the built community and the lives of those who live and work there.
