The Photo Archive Project continues as a huge project for Core Sound Waterfowl Museum.  The museum is collecting old/not so old photos from all Down East communities.  The photos will be in an archive that will be accessible to anyone wanting to view the photos or perhaps use the photos in projects about the history of Down East.

Lillie Chadwick Miller is helping to lead this project.  She is currently scanning photos and collecting as much information as possible about each, such as the names of persons in the photo, location and dates. 

If you have photos you would be willing to contribute to the project, please contact Lillie at 252-728-4566 or email her at

Lillie will also be able at each of the Community Night events held at Core Sound Waterfowl Museum.  The next community night is Monday, August 28 beginning with a covered dish meal at6:00 pm with the program beginning at 8:00 pm.  She will scan the photos during the program and return them to you before you leave. 

Be part of the event Monday night as well as adding your family photos to the project!
Bring your photos from any and all Down East communities!!!

The remaining Community Night events are:

September 25:  Atlantic - Cedar Island
