Lawrence Home

Recently bequeathed to the City for restoration, the Lawrence family farm on East Kearney has served as a working facility since its construction beginning in 1876. In 1885, the majority of the home as it is seen now was finished, and several generations of Lawrences have lived in the three0stroy home. A distinctive feature of the home is its tower room, and legend has it that outlaws used to hide in it because it offered a long-range view.
