Naturally, all of our photographs that do not have restrictions are available to view for free at the Archives for research purposes. However, if you are looking to add a little something extra to your home, consider placing a photo order at the Archives. After inspection by the archivist, for the low cost of $15 (personal and non-commercial use only) we will gladly digitize any non-restricted image and send you a high resolution digital file of the image which you may then take to a print shop of your choosing.
Thinking of taking that extra leap for your business? For an additional commercial use fee of $15 per image, you can order images for your business, bed and breakfast, upcoming PowerPoint presentation, press release, book, historic article, website, calendar, or any other commercial use that you can dream of.
