Home Grown Lumber post cards

Thanks again to Steve and Olga Morrill for loaning their post card collection to the Henney History Room of the Conway Public Library. Thanks also to our volunteers, especially Curtis Tinker and Debra Cottrell for scanning almost 800 post cards to add to our online catalog.

We recently held a preview showing of the collection in the Ham Community Center at the Conway Public Library and heard wonderful stories from our patrons and the public on their own history and experiences at and around the places depicted in the post cards. We learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and hope this will become a more regular event as we head into the 250th celebration of the granting of Conway, New Hampshire.

If you know where this covered bridge is and the story or stories behind us, please leave us a comment on this blog. Thanks,

Morrill Covered Bridge. Home Grown Lumber post card collection.
