How Maidenhead became Lawrence in 1816

October 25, 2022 @ 6:30 pm

Join MCL for “The Name Was Changed to Protect the Innocent: How Maidenhead became Lawrence in 1816 on Tuesday, October 25, 6:30pm virtually.

Join us to learn the interesting stories behind the change: How did we get “Maidenhead” to begin with? Why, after 125 years as Maidenhead, was changing the name so urgent? Who supported the change – and who was against it? Why Lawrence? And how did it all come down? Presented by Dennis P. Waters, Mercer County Library Commissioner and former Lawrence Township Historian.
