Wakarusa Commons Shopping Center

Wakarusa Commons Lawrence KS

Lawrence, Kansas, was founded in 1854 by the New England Immigrant Aid Company and named after Amos Lawrence, a Republican abolitionist originally from Massachusetts.

The Bristol Groupe started developing on the West side of Lawrence in 1996 and was the first retail shopping center built at that end of town.

Opening in 1997, the center has served West Lawrence almost as long as there has been a West Lawrence.

Our retailers and service providers proudly call Lawrence home and serve the community.
