Historic Photography Show 2022

The Ligonier Valley has a proud history that the Pennsyvlania Room showcases every year with their Historic Photography Show. In addition to photographs, the exhibits include memorabilia and artifacts relating to that year's theme.

“Summertime Fun in the Ligonier Valley,” the twentieth in a series of annual historical photography exhibits, will be held at the Ligonier Valley Library from August 9 through September 27. In addition to photographs, the display will feature stories, historical information, documents, and memorabilia from summer events throughout the Valley.

The exhibit committee, headed by Pennsylvania Room Archivist Shirley Iscrupe have been working this spring to gather photos that depict “Summertime Fun in the Ligonier Valley” from many sources within the Pennsylvania Room collection.

We are requesting the loan of photographs and memorabilia of the many summertime events and activities from baseball, church festivals, firemen’s festivals, and visiting local venues like Idlewild, Powdermill, and our wide variety of local museums. We are also interested in photos depicting family reunions, picnics, enjoying ice cream, block parties, golfing, swimming, enjoying the concerts on The Diamond, and any fun summer activities. We invite community members to share their best “Summertime Fun in the Ligonier Valley” memories.

The mission of the Historic Photography Shows 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 Pa Room collection. This is an ideal manner of preserving our history and provides patrons with a strong base from which to conduct research.

An Opening Reception is scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 9, from 4:00 til 7:00 p.m.  Snacks and conversation will be served.
