Welcome to the Township of Lawrence

Lawrence was founded in 1697, and for most of its three centuries it was a typical rural, agricultural, New Jersey community that travelers passed through on their way from New Brunswick to Trenton or from Philadelphia to New York. Since the township is equidistant between Philadelphia and New York, it should not be surprising that many of the major north-south transportation corridors of the Northeastern U.S. – both past and present – pass through Lawrence.

Meet the Mayor - Patricia Hendricks Farmer

Lawrence Township is a community of families, raising children and caring for our elders. We have a rich history that extends from the pre-American revolution to present day. Main Street and farmland, we are a desired educational destination and a marketplace for opportunity. As Mayor, my focus will be on business, education and the arts in Lawrence Township.
