SEARCH LAWRENCE LISTINGS

Founded in 1697, Lawrenceville is a small community located roughly halfway between Trenton and Princeton. Also known as “the village of Lawrenceville,” this community is a piece of living history. Lawrenceville's commitment to conservation and historic preservation are evident. Residents of Lawrenceville reenact historical events and preserve local history through restoration projects. Because of the efforts of the Lawrenceville Historical Society, you can still visit buildings constructed back when the town itself was in its infancy. The Brearley House, for example, was built in 1761 with home-fired clay bricks dug up from the surrounding area. From beautiful Revolutionary War-era homes to contemporary models, and with the steady employment base in and around the community, it is easy to see why listings in Lawrenceville have traditionally remained in demand.
