Local History Photos of the Week January 4, 2019

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Old Corning Glass Factory Building

Our first photo for this week is of an old Corning Glass factory building at some time in the past. In looking at the hills behind the photo I would speculate that the factor building was on the south side of Corning. If you recognize the location of the photo and/or have any stories about Corning Glass you’d like to share – please do!

Photo 2: Southside Hill 

Our second photo for this week appears to be of the south side hill area of Corning. I would speculate that the castle like building seen in the background just might be the old armory that was torn down and replaced by the Castle Garden Apartments sometime in the sixties. And again, if you have any stories about the history of Corning that you’d like to share – please do!

Have a great weekend!

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

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.

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!


And if you find any old photos or postcards of the Corning area that you don’t know what to do with – you can always donate them to the library!
