About the Roanoke County Public Library Local History Photographs

About the Collection

The Roanoke County Public Library Local History Room maintains a collection of close to 300 photographs taken throughout the county's history. The photographs span a broad range of years, from the late nineteenth century to the latter half of the twentieth century. Approximately 100 photographs were taken at the time of the county's sesquicentennial celebration and are a unique record of that milestone in the county's history. The images depict people, structures, educational institutions, religious facilities, commercial buildings and activities, civic life, geographical features, and community events.

Format of Original Images

The images were scanned from black and white photographic prints which are mostly 3 x 5 and 7 x 5 inches.
