Help Tell Pulaski County's Story


The Wilderness Road Regional Museum will be hosting Photographic Scanning events in Pulaski County, on March 25 and April 11.  The museum is seeking photographs that help tell the story of Newbern, Dublin, the African American Community in Pulaski County and the land along New River now covered by Claytor Lake.

Working in collaboration with Emory & Henry College and its Appalachian Center for Civic Life, the Wilderness Road Regional Museum hopes to increase its holding of photographs showing our local history and to make those holdings more available for public use. 

The Photographic Scanning events offer an opportunity for interested persons to have digital copies of photographs included as a permanent part of the Museum’s collection. The photographs will be scanned, and individuals will take home their original photos.  

Students from Emory & Henry College will be available to scan photographs on Wednesday, March 25, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Dublin United Methodist Church at 424 East Main Street in Dublin, and on Saturday, April 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Museum at 5240 Wilderness Road, in the village of Newbern.  For more information contact Tal Stanley at 276.944.6900 or email 2vG5!Az}*gjU]#[dIp]@}ca3MOK.
