The Details


Lawrence, MA was one of the nation's first planned cities, and you can learn about its history and development at Lawrence Heritage State Park. The exhibits in the Visitors Center, a restored 1840s boarding house, tell the stories of Lawrence's mill workers, including their role in the 1912 Bread and Roses Strike. You can also learn about the immigrant populations who settled in Lawrence, and test your skills by planning your own industrial city. Visitors can also walk the esplanade alongside the Merrimac River.


Sunday - Saturday: 9:00 am-4:00 pm


A small parking lot is located behind the visitors center on Mill Street.

A private parking garage is located on Appleton Street.
