Lawrence House, Launceston, built in 1753, was given to the National Trust to help preserve the Georgian character of Castle Street. Lawrence House is a Grade II listed building and is now leased to Launceston Town Council and in use as a local museum and civic centre. Lawrence House Museum details the history of the town from early times to the present day. Full of interesting exhibits, it features Victorian costume and the lives of some of the notable people associated with the town, such as John Couch Adams, the astronomer who is credited with co-discovering Neptune in 1846.
