About the Lawrence History Center (LHC)

Founded in 1978 as the Immigrant City Archives by German immigrant Eartha Dengler, the Lawrence History Center’s mission is to collect, preserve, share, and animate the history and heritage of Lawrence and its people.
Currently in their fifth decade, LHC seeks to better serve a community that is rapidly changing due to immigration and changes in the local economy. The past few years have marked enormous growth for LHC as they move from being an organization that ‘collects and preserves’ stories of the city to one that animates these stories for current residents, researchers, and visitors to Lawrence through rich and varied programming, the strength of our collections and the power of the history of an immigrant city on the rise.
