Old Home Town - 100 years ago

March 24, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for March 24, 1909: “Lawrence is enjoying probably the biggest building boom the town has ever known. New houses are going up in every corner of town and before the summer is here more than 50 new homes, practically all of them thoroughly modern, will be in the process of construction. … The boating season seems to be opening fast on the Kaw with many pleasure boats and a lot more to come. There are new rowboats and canoes and Lawrence has a good-size Navy on the river with more due soon. It should be a good season.”
