Lawrence was incorporated as a Rural Municipality on 5 November 1914, named for George Lawrence (1855-1924), Provincial Minister of Agriculture from 1911 to 1915. [1] Between 1925 and 1979, the municipality was operated by an administrator appointed by the provincial government. [2] In 2015, it was amalgamated with Ochre River to form the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore.
