Ohio Historical Society Appalachia Photographs

The Ohio Historical Society needs your help!

During the 1890s and early 1900s Ohio photographer Albert Ewing traveled southeast Ohio and central West Virginia photographing people and their surrounding environment. He created an enduring record of Appalachian life at the turn of the of the last century.

However, the historical record is scant as to the names of the individuals represented. Do you know someone in the photographs? Could they be your grandparents or distant relatives?

Visit Ohio Historical Society or go online to ohiohistory.org to help curators identify the people in Ewing’s photographs.
