Historic Photography Show

Exciting things await in 2018, including renovations to the Pennsylvania Room and the 17th Annual Historic Photography Show which will be held later this year.

The Historic Photography Show ran it’s 16th annual exhibit in the spring of 2017 – “Celebrating Ligonier’s Diamond Park.” The Pennsylvania Room and Ligonier Valley Library thank everyone for putting together another amazing show! A special thank you to the borough for allowing us to borrow a section of bench from the Diamond. And a very special thank you to everyone who stopped by to take a look! We look forward to 2018’s show!

The Historic Photography Show

Binders from each of the Historic Photography Shows are available in the Pennsylvania Room featuring photos and documents. Stop by during normal Pennsylvania Room hours to take a look. For more information about this and other aspects of the Pennsylvania Room call the library at 724-238-6451 and ask to speak to Shirley Iscrupe or email her at lvlparoom@ligonierlibrary.org.

The mission of the Historic Photography Show (as well as the smaller shows held throughout the year) is to present a facet of Ligonier Valley history that is interesting, educational and may have been overlooked in the past. In addition, the photographs and documents copied become a permanent part of the Pennsylvania Room collection. This is an ideal manner of preserving our history and provides patrons with a strong base from which to conduct research.

The Historic Photography Show is an exhibit put on by the Ligonier Valley Library’s Pennsylvania Room staff and volunteers. If you would like to be a volunteer, then please stop by the Pennsylvania Room and speak with a staff member.
