  • Photos taken between the 1860s and 1979, although the more historic photos are more likely to be used.

  • Photos taken in Franklin County.
  • One submission form per photo.
  • Limit 10 photos per family. Call 360–687–6731 to set up an appointment if you’re a private collector with a sizable collection.
