Hi everyone, here is our local history photo of the week.

This record for this photo is completely blank — however, if you look closely at the photo you can see at the top it says “B.P.O.E. Corning, N. Y.” So I think we can safely say this is a photo of an Elks Club building in Corning at some time in the past. My only question is — is this actually the same Elks Club building that we see on Walnut Street today? If so what a difference! The old building had great class the new building looks like a upgrade from the 1950s or 1960s.

Have a great weekend!

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

Don’t forget at the library you can scan your photos and slides to create digital family albums and slideshows; and even use one of the Circut machines, and other Creation Station equipment, to help you create a special paper family history album or calendar for 2017!

And here’s your weekly reminder that at the library you can scan your photos and slides to create digital family albums and slideshows; and even use one of the Circut machines, and other Creation Station equipment, to help you create a special paper family history album or calendar for 2017!

Also of note, we have the local paper, at times called the Corning Leader, Corning Journal or Corning Daily Journal, on microfilm from 1840 to the present — so you can visit the library and research local history and your family tree if you wish!
