Lawrence Park Historical Society Celebrates its 90-year Anniversary by Tracy Geibel

Saturday, Sept. 17

The Lawrence Park Historical Society (LPHS) will honor its enduring heritage on Saturday, Sept. 17 with a fun-filled festival.

The LPHS Fest will take visitors back to the 1920s. They can learn about the past through walking and trolley tours. Horse-drawn tours will be offered at 1, 2, and 3 p.m. Only 25 seats are available for each time slot, so tickets are being sold in advance at LPHS during operating hours, at $10 per adult and $5 per child under age 12.

While enjoying the festival, visitors can check out displays at LPHS, participate in activities offered by the library, or enjoy children’s games and crafts.

Additionally, the fest will include an art contest. Winners, decided by a public vote, will have their work featured at Coffee in the Park for October. Entries depict Lawrence Park, or artists’ interpretations of the township in the 1920s.

An artisan/craft fair will feature handmade artwork at the Lawrence Park United Methodist Church.

Fest buttons are $5 per person and grant admission to most of the day’s events. They can be purchased at The Shoppe on Main Street, Dabrowski’s Restaurant and Deli, The LP Dinor, and the LPHS. – Tracy Geibel
