New Online Exhibit: Juniata County History Project

Featuring several thousand images, this collection encompasses the range of lifetime experiences in Juniata County over the course of the 20th century.  Highlighting both exceptional photographs as well as portraits that could easily have been taken from any family mantelpiece, the images illustrate rural Pennsylvania’s cultural heritage.  The Juniata County History Project was a long term ethnographic research project dedicated to understanding the various forms of visual communication in Juniata County (Pa.).  These exhibit panels showcase customary scenes from everyday life in central Pennsylvania, including agriculture, marriage, childhood, and the rural tradition of the estate auction.
