This exhibit and its catalog bring some 50 historic photos of the Wallowa Country to public attention. Many of the photos are from the Wallowa County Museum, county newspapers, the fledgling Wallowa History Center, and curator David Weaver’s own collection. A few were retrieved from family albums and trunks at the Center’s invitation. The hope is that this work will inspire others to pay attention to old images and their stories of the past.

There is an exhibit booklet available for sale online at this link.
