About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

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.

Secret Squirrel, 1922

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

Olney, IL

One possible location is in Olney, a town known for its white squirrel population
