If you like water going over the dam that is all that will capture your sights. Rt 28 is noisy and the area is not the best at times.

Not the most spectacular dam you may see but it is long and holds back the mighty Merrimack River coming all the way fro the White Mts of NH and going out to Salisbury MA Atlantic Ocean. Check out nearby Lawton's for a super hot dog when viewing.

Just an old dam that stops the flow of water down the Merrimack River. It's used to make hydro power. No place to park other than on a side street. Not worth your visit.

The constant construction work and no parking. There is no historical marker and so much history to share! Shame on Lawrence for not promoting its history!

Lawrence is a very interesting city with a very interesting history. In particular, I encourage visitors to study the famous 1912 textile workers strike. Women workers, from a great variety of ethnic groups, took charge of the strike and - surprise - they won a notable victory.... In labor legends, this became known as 'the Bread and Roses strike."

Unfortunately, Lawrence does very little to tell its story to visitors. Lowell, a textile town that's nearby, is far more successful in presenting itself to tourists. Lowell protects its historic sites. Still, visit Lawrence, if you're interested in industrial history. History buffs only, for the moment. Casual visitors won't find very much in Lawrence.
