Lawrenceville, NJ

For several centuries, Lawrenceville was the dynamic heart of Lawrence Township, with active merchants, two trolley lines connecting Princeton and Trenton, and surrounded by farms.

Lawrence Township was founded in 1697 and was known as Maidenhead, named by the early Quaker settlers after a Thames River village later incorporated into the City of London. In 1816, the municipality was renamed Lawrence, after Captain James Lawrence, commander of the frigate Chesapeake and one of the naval heroes of the War of 1812.

Lawrenceville is a historic location dating back to Colonial days, traversed during the Revolution's battles of Trenton and Princeton. The Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville was founded in 1698, with meetinghouse erected on the site of the present building seen above sometime in the early 1700's. The present structure dates back to 1764.
