A little History of
Lawrenceburg Boy Scout Troop 604


In 1901, Chicago publisher William D. Boyce lost his way in a dense London fog. A boy came to his aid and, after guiding the man, refused a tip, explaining that as a Scout he would not take a tip for doing a Good Turn. This gesture by an unknown Scout inspired a meeting with Robert Baden-Powell, the British founder of the Boy Scouts. As a result William Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910. He also created the Lone Scouts, which merged with the Boy Scouts of America in 1924.

Approved December 15, 1917, by the Nation Council, Boy Scouts of America, New York, a Charter was given to:

1. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church
2. Group of Citizens
3. Hamline Chapel Methodist Church

Troop 3 was "born in Lawrenceburg, and was the forerunner of Troop #4, sponsored by Hamline Chapel United Methodist Church.
Since 1917 Boy Scouts of America has been an active organization at Hamline Chapel United Methodist Church.
