This photo is one of over 840 glass plate negatives in our museum collection.
Taken between 1892 - 1920 by Marion G. Warner who owned the general store at Main & Elm St (our 1910 building), these priceless artifacts of historic Monroe were found by Mr. James Price in an outdoor shed when the building next door (where our main museum is today) was being prepared for demolition.
Now digitized for preservation, we can’t thank Jim enough for saving this treasured collection!
This February 17, 1910 photo is identified as “looking north on Old Street. Weidle House & log house. Recovered & porch added after 1910.” It looks a lot like looking north on East Ave, near Elm Street, too. Do you have any information to add?
