Monroeville In Pictures
An Exhibition of Historical Photographs
from the archives of the Monroeville Historical Society

Gallery Space of Monroeville Public Library will be hosting an exhibition of historical photographs from the archives of the Monroeville Historic Society for the month of November. Over 50 photographs have been prepared and organized for display by Louis Chandler, a local historian and the group’s archivist. This exhibition is free and open to the public during Library hours.

Ten years ago the Historical Society began to build a digital archive of photos by asking residents to lend their personal and family photos of life in their community. Submitted photos were digitally scanned and the originals returned to their owners. Over the years this digital collection has grown to over 1,000 photos, which capture the people, places, and things that tell the story of the Monroeville and Pitcairn communities over the past 200 years.

Chandler is pleased that our Library has recognized the valuable asset this resource represents. This exhibition of selected photos allows the Historical Society to share its collection in a form that will make the pictures readily available to the entire community. Digital format of these and hundreds more are available on the Historical Society’s website at www.monroevillehistorical.org. Further, selected photos appear in the Society’s most recent publication, A History of Patton Township (Monroeville and Pitcairn), which can be found in the Library’s reference section and is for sale at the main desk.
