The Value of History
Lawrence County, Pennsylvania is decorated with historic homes, buildings, and other landmarks. Together we can work on the preservation of the County's historic, architectural gems.
LCPP is committed to educating and assisting the community in the preservation and promotion of the history, architecture, and economic prosperity of Lawrence County. Per founding member and past President Joseph Goodge, "the objectives of LCPP include preserving historic landmarks and architecture, promoting the economic value and importance of Lawrence County’s history, enhancing and improving the image of the county, and recognizing individuals, businesses and municipalities for their efforts to preserve the history, architecture and character of the county."
