WE WANT TO SCAN YOUR OLD PHOTOS & DOCUMENTS!

The Ashland Museum would like to scan historic and vintage photos, letters and documents  related to Ashland’s history. If you have old items of this sort, pre-1950’s preferably, please bring them to the Hanover Arts and Activities Center on Train Day, Saturday, Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Look for the signs directing you to the Ashland Museum Scanning Project.

We’ll scan them for you and send you a digital file of the scan. The digital image and the details about the events, people or places in the image or document you give us will become part of the Ashland Museum collection.
