Ed Bly Historical Photos of Petersburgh

The library was fortunate enough to be gifted a photo album of historical photos of Petersburgh.  They were brought to us by Ed Bly, Rensselaer County Undersheriff, grandson of Merle and Richard Weaver.  Richard Weaver was the town historian in the 70s/80s.  After spending some time out of state, the photo have now come back home to Petersburgh are available for viewing at the library.

If you are interested in viewing the photos but cannot make it to the library, they have been scanned to our library website.  This was generously done by Steve and Sharon Hodges.  Sharon was the previous director of the library, and they had a special interest in the history and genealogy of the town.  If you would like to view the photos online,  they can be accessed via our Local History page here on the website, or directly at https://www.flickr.com/photos/134470810@N05/sets/72157700827520395/
