Purcellville Historical Society Seeks Photographs of Exhibit

The Purcellville Historical Society is asking residents, businesses and collectors to look through their piles of photographs to help the organization with its “A Walk Through Purcellville” exhibit.

The organization is the successor to the Purcellville Preservation Society, and began meeting under its new name last year.

Photographs will be accepted until April 20. The exhibit opens May 27 and will feature photographs covering all aspects of life specific in Purcellville, and may be of people, events, group outings and landscapes from all eras.

Images may be emailed to phspresident1@gmail.com or mail to Purcellville Historical Society, PO Box 765, Purcellville, VA 20134.

Each image should be accompanied by a short description of the scene and people within it as well as an explanation of how the lender wishes the photograph to be displayed. In the case of mailed photographs, the lender’s full name should be clearly labeled on the back. A separate sheet should include an explanation of the people, place, date and event depicted in the photo. List any special care needs for the image and a return address.

Donations toward shipping and mounting fees would be appreciated.

The “Walk Through Purcellville” exhibit will be on display during the Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29 at the Purcellville Train Station.
