Research library to host event Oct. 19

The Whitehall Historical Society Research Library is inviting people to rediscover Whitehall’s history during a special event next weekend.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, the library is inviting residents to help identify people and places pictured in the library’s archives of old photographs.

The library has very little information on some of those photographs and is hoping to solicit the help of the local citizenry to fill in the blanks.

The library would also like to scan, photograph or copy photos of local people and places and is asking people to bring them by the Whitehall Municipal Center next weekend.

The event is free of charge and is being held in during what is National Archive Month.
