Historic Photography Show 2014
"Faces of Ligonier: Veterans of World War I"
September 9 - November 18, 2014


This year's exhibit commemorates the Ligonier veterans of World War I.

As with our past exhibits, we are asking the community to lend photographs and documents for us to copy and add to the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Room.

We would also like to borrow artifacts and memorabilia relating to World War I. They will be returned at the conclusion of the exhibit.

The exhibit will primarily be on display inside the Pennsylvania Room and in the hallway just ouside the room. There are usually items also on display in the outside window case near the library’s main entrance.

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 Pennsyvlania Room and speak with a staff member.
