With the city set to celebrate its 150th birthday Sept. 18, the Journal-World is taking a look at early-day life in Lawrence:

The first house constructed on the site of present-day Lawrence is believed to be a log cabin constructed in May 1854 by Charles Stearns, a settler who preceded the New England Emigrant Aid Company.

The cabin was near the southeast corner of present-day Sixth and Massachusetts streets.

The cabin was torn down around 1881.
