Lawnside’s Legacy

The Lawnside Historical Society is a 501 (c)(3), tax-exempt membership organization established in 1990 because the Peter Mott House was about to be demolished. The house is a symbol of this free African American community that dates to colonial times.

The Society seeks members to help promote the community’s history and donations to preserve its legacy.

Contributions can be sent to the Lawnside Historical Society, P.O. Box 608, Lawnside, N.J. 08045-0608.
