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.

Brevard, N.C. = Home of the White Squirrel

Brevard, North Carolina, claims to be the home of the white squirrel. They hold their White Squirrel festival every May .

Olney resident

Olney is also called "The home of the white squirrel". I was not aware of Kenton TN. But as an Olney resident, I am fairly confident that this is not a photograph of an Olney site.

Also...Kenton, TN

Kenton, TN....also known as "Home of the White Squirrel"

It might be Kenton, TN with the other Tennessee photos that are close to this one.

It could be one of several places which possess white squirrel colonies.
