The Turnhalle Building, 900 Rhode Island, is the oldest standing community building in Lawrence. It served as a German-American community center and now has been purchased by the Lawrence Preservation Alliance who will restore the building. .

Dennis Brown, president of the Lawrence Preservation Alliance, which recently purchased and plans to restore the Turnhalle Building, 900 Rhode Island, thinks the building project has a chance to create something dramatic. "We don't know how and we don't know the details yet, but the end game is for this building to be a vibrant part of our community," Brown said, pictured inside the building Thursday, Sept. 26, 2012.
