Thurmond Family Historic Photos First Week of Exhibit

Three years ago, members of the Thurmond Family donated more than 350 scanned glass negative photos to the Park County Archives that were taken between 1899-1912 by Carol Thurmond Wills’ grandfather, Charles Philip Thurmond. A majority of the photos were taken where he and his family homesteaded in Marquette and on the North Fork. In addition to a few typical posed group photos, the collection includes “action” photos that reveal daily ranch life at that time. One photo also shows a July 4th celebration in Cody more than one hundred years ago.

The Thurmond family is delighted that the Park County Archives has selected the Thurmond Family collection (Charles Philip Thurmond Family Trust copyright) to print and frame forty-seven (47) of the photos for the June exhibit.

The exhibit will begin on Wednesday, June 5th and end on June 30th.

Come see them during Library Hours
M-Th 9:00 am – 7:00 pm
