Ruby Reid Postcard

The thousands of images in our museum archives include every format imaginable– from rare glass negatives to postcards and yearbook pictures, Polaroids to formal studio portraits, oil paintings to family snapshots. Although some are on display, the vast majority are catalogued and preserved in the Susan Powell Brinkley Library. Many of these artifacts are too fragile to be safely handled or displayed.

Among our goals for the near future is the creation of an accessible digital archive of our amassed photographs and other non-textual materials for easy viewing either on-site or online.

But for now, interested researchers and museum visitors can find a good sampling of our images reprinted in local history books and regional publications.
