* Welcome to LawrenceCountyMemoirs.com. My name is Jeff Bales Jr. and this site was designed to document various aspects of the history of Lawrence County & surrounding areas in Western Pennsylvania. New content is being added on a regular basis. Please send along all comments to me at email@example.com.

* SEND ME PICTURES. I am very eager for any historical information, old photos, or mementos relating to Lawrence County and surrounding areas. I love to post personal stories or antidotes as well.

Celebrate Lawrence County!
Our hometown county has a storied history and "Seeing" New Castle and nearby environs is something I always appreciate. Thanks to everyone that has contributed photos and information to make this website an amazing success since it went online in August 2011. I am firmly committed to seeing this site grow even more in the coming years. Thanks again for all the support!
