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

(Click on the photos for a larger view!)

Photo 1: Denison Park Postcard

Our first photo of the week shows Denison Park in the days of old – date unknown.

What cool photo, it shoes a summer scene complete with ladies wearing summer white!


Photo 2: Old Corning Opera House & Music Consevatory 

Our second photo for this week is of an old Corning landmark; the old Corning Opera House, which I believe was torn down to make room for the lot that housed the old Woolworth store.

What a great old building – can’t you just imagine the music played there and the peformances given?

Have a great weekend!

Corning History is a Southeast Steuben County Library blog.

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!
