Old Home Town - 100 years ago

December 27, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Dec. 27, 1906: "It is generally conceded that our seven-man police force is the best for its size in the state and the area. We should take every chance to let these people know they are admired and appreciated. : An effort was made last evening to burn the Francisco Livery Barn but people were notified in time to put out the fire and prevent serious damage. There has been considerable evidence here of late about firebug activity and everyone is asked to be on the alert and notify authorities if they see suspicious activity. "
