Old Home Town - 100 years ago

May 29, 2008


From the Lawrence Daily World for May 29, 1908: "Odd Fellows Lodges No. 4 and 18 in Lawrence were consolidated last night after more than 40 years of separate existence. They feel the merger will be better for both. Lodge No. 4 is the oldest in the state, some 50 years of age. : May 30 has been designated as legal holiday to honor our patriotic dead and it is hoped there will be complete and solemn observances."
