This Slaughter House is a gallery and a community of artists, has studio space and a shop, and presents exhibitions.

The building on Butler Street and the structures behind it were built by a German immigrant and his wife, Gotfried and Amalie Bokermann, between 1885 and 1890. In the spring of 2001, two naive woodworkers, Garth Jones and Don Reed, were wandering through Lawrenceville looking for a commercial property to house their woodshop and that became the seed for Slaughter House.
