Town founded by Unitarians marks 150th
Lawrence, Kansas, celebration.
To celebrate the sesquicentennial, members of the fellowship built a scale model of the original building and used it on a float in the city's sesquicentennial parade. Other anniversary events included a symposium, and the rededication of the original 1,500-pound bell from the First Unitarian Church. The bell was donated to the local high school in the 1890s. The Lawrence High School class of 2004 raised more than $2,000 to have it refurbished.
