Community Information Form
The Laurel Historical Society needs your help with the Laurel Museum's 2023 exhibit on the histories of our surrounding communities in the greater Laurel area, entitled "It's All Laurel: City Limits and Beyond."

We want to understand the history and development of the neighborhoods and communities outside of the historic area. You know more about your community than we do and we want to hear from you!

Answers will not be shared with the public or put on display, but the collected information will be used to develop exhibit panels and document information for the archives.
