The Weston, Oregon Public Library Photo Archive contains about 426 photo images, 7 maps, and 60 Weston Weekly Leader newspaper display ads.
      This digital archive is dedicated to the memory of Margaret Sutherland, who took special interest in collecting and preserving local history and photo images while serving as the City Librarian from 1955 until her retirement in 1995, and to Kathleen Schmidtgall who took over as City Librarian in 1995, and has carried on to preserve and expand the archive.
      Over the past 3 decades the photo images have been preserved on film, and then transferred to digital format for preservation and usage. Over the years the images have been restored, and selected images have been enlarged for wall decor in the Library to showcase the local history. In the year 2000, many of the photo images were printed and inserted into two large albums available for public viewing, and in 2009, many of the photo images were used to create a 48-minute DVD "My Home Town" which presents the rich history of Weston, Oregon and the surrounding area. That DVD is available for checkout at the library.
      This online digital archive has been created for vistors to readily preview and puruse the photo collection. It is divided by subject matter categories which follow below. Each category is linked to a category page which contains all such images in the collection. Then, each image can be viewed in larger format with information added pertaining to that image. Many of the photos have not been identified, but have been included as they are subjects of such special interest and are fine examples depicting an era of early-day local history.

       It is to be noted that special credit needs to be given to the following, as this archive project would not have been possible without their interest and support: Friends of the Weston Public Library, grant funding from the Umatilla County Cultural Coalition and the Athena-Weston Education and Resource Enhancement Plan [AWERE}, and the CS Jackson Fund.
Also, a special thank you to all of people who so willingly shared their family photos for library use.
