Clay County Archives and Historical Library ~ Liberty, Missouri

Preserving the Past for the Present

Project Coordinator: Jane Shepherd

The Archives photograph collection grows almost daily.  Donations from individuals, early postcards, and access to the work of area professional photographers, offer graphic depictions of homes and home life, schools and students, businesses and industrial history in Clay County, Missouri.  The photographs are imaged and abstracted with as much information about the subject picture as is available.  There is still a growing number of "unidentified" within the collection, whose mysteries will one day be solved and details revealed.
