In partnership with the Stanley Museum in Kingfield, this Weld Free Public Library exhibition explores early photography in Franklin County at the turn of the 20th century.

She documented the lives of people in Maine and around the world during an era of rapid change. There are at least two scenes of Weld in the library’s collection. The longer you look at the prints made from these negatives, the more you will discover! In 2023,
