About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

The Twilight World of Shorpyville version.

Earl Roberson

My cousin Earl, who died recently, was the owner of this house. Here is a picture of him (seated) at my family reunion a few years ago. His house is across a few fields from mine. More photos.

Wilkinson-Dozier House

Built by Joshua Wilkinson between 1816 and 1826. This Federal style home with a double tiered portico was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

Preserved!

This is the Wilkinson-Dozier House (c. 1825). It has been beautifully preserved. More photos.

Odd columns

I wonder why they thought lack of symmetry in the spacing of the porch columns was a good thing, design-wise?

[The columns line up with the door, which is off-center. - Dave]

Yes it is

a bit tweaked, squeezed and peaked!

The Thin Manse

Great play on words Dave. You've outdone yourself.
