CD: History of the City of Lawrence [Massachusetts]


"The aim of this volume is to present to the reader facts and incidents in the history of Lawrence." Although much of this history is well known, "some portions…have never before been published. These have been collated to rescue them from oblivion." "In the statistical portion of the work, Ballardvale, Andover, North Andover and Methuen are included, for the reason that the interests of these places have become, in a great measure, identical with those of Lawrence." North Andover and Methuen were especially close to Lawrence due to their connection by a "horse-railway" and the likelihood that they would come under the municipality of Lawrence over time. "In all that has been embodied in these pages, the aim of the author has been to obtain facts in the order of their coming, and to present them, without imbellishment or coloring, for the use of those who may, in coming years, see fit to enlarge upon the themes which he (the author) has only touched." A new everyname index and an index of advertisers provide easy access to information.
