The Lawrence House was originally built in 1897 by William Abbott Lawrence as his home. The house was then owned by the Cragen family, who maintained it mostly in it's original condition for approximately 60 years. In the early 1980’s, owners Price and Christina Corney transitioned it into The Crystal Palace Victorian Bed & Breakfast. Approximately 16 years later, they sold it to Stephen & Stacie Ayotte who continued to run and maintain The Crystal Palace. In the fall of 2014 the home was sold to Kathleen and Martin Clark. The Clark's have changed the name to the Lawrence House Victorian Bed & Breakfast in honor of Mr. Lawrence.
