North Lawrence Community Schools is located about halfway between Indianapolis and Louisville, in an area rich with limestone. Earlier generations of Lawrence Countians have provided stone for such landmarks as the Washington Cathedral and the Federal Triangle Buildings. Today, limestone remains an important part of the economy, but the economic base also includes automobile manufacturing plants, a federal munitions facility, and various other small businesses and agricultural enterprises.
