Description

Charles D. Lawrence made his mark on the land with the simple white farmhouses that comprise Fairfield Center. The houses, now more than a century old, seem to belong there, like they grew out of the ground. But with the discovery of Lawrence's architectural designs, the thought process that went into the designing and building of these seemingly artless houses becomes apparent. The drawings give us a new appreciation of Lawrence's work and save the architect from undeserved obscurity.
