What's Up in Lawrenceville

Rachel Webber of Lawrenceville Corporation considers herself the Leslie Knope of Lawrenceville. And we agree.


Lawrenceville Corporation's Rachel Webber has an upbeat (and admittedly edgy) attitude that epitomizes the Lawrenceville area, a region that has seen huge growth in recent years. If you had the foresight to buy property there 10 years ago, you're probably feeling pretty good right now.

And it's no surprise why. "Fifteen or sixteen new businesses have opened in the last 6 or 7 months," Webber says. A lot in Upper Lawrenceville. Even better, the majority of those businesses are women-owned.

Luckily, being the Lawrenceville-whisperer she is, Webber gave us a few tips on what to check out in the area.

1. Ruhling Woven

2. Hippie and French

3. Geology Rocks and Minerals

4. Make + Matter

5. Three Pigs Collective

Watch the full interview for more, and have a few good laughs as we try to stump Webber by asking her questions like: Which Lawrenceville business could also be called "Singular Science of Living Things?" Hint: skincare.
