Old Housewarming (LPA members only)

Sunday, November 2
702 Louisiana 

Join us as we tour the dream home of Alexander and Eunice Marks! Arriving in Lawrence at age fifteen to apprentice in the jewelry shop of David Prager, Alexander bought the business in 1865. In 1873 he bought the building at 735 Massachusetts and located his business there. His brother Solomon’s jewelry business at 817 Massachusetts still exists as Marks Jewelers today!

Home to Stan and Jan Shumway for over fifty years, this well-preserved house now belongs to LPA members Doug and Pam McKean, our hosts for this event. There will be a brief presentation on the home’s history at 2pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
