Fire damages Sacred Heart Church in Lawrence
October 19, 2023
If you are something of a history fan, October 12 has been an interesting date. You can find "good" things that happened, and you can find "bad" things that have occurred. For example: • 1492, Columbus reaches the "New World"; • 1870, Confederate General, Robert E. Lee dies; • 1997: John Denver dies; • 2023: Sacred Heart Church in Lawrence suffered significant fire damage.
This last item may not seem to be as significant as the other items listed first, except to the people of Lawrence and a large number of Lawrence native people currently living elsewhere.
