A Walk About Lawrence

Meet up at the Watkins Museum of History on Saturday, May 14th at 10:30 a.m. for a walk and talk about the public buidings and public spaces near 11th and Massachusetts Street in Lawrence, Kansas.  We'll begin with a behind the scenes experience at the Watkins Museum 3rd floor  (now under restoration) and then we'll cross the street for a tour of the Douglas County Courthouse, then we'll proceed to South Park to explore the Band Stand and the Roosevelt Fountain, and then learn about the business block south of 11th street and we'll end with a unique visit to the 1940 Art Moderne Armory - now known as the Lawrence Community Building. Donation $5/adult. Kids are free. Donations will go toward the restoration of the stained glass windows at the Watkins Museum. This event is sponsored by the Douglas County Heritage Conservation Council and the Lawrence Preservation Alliance. For more info: 785-330-2878 or
