Photos on the Move


For the enjoyment of the patients and their guests, the management at the United Methodist Home hung framed vintage photographs of the local community in their hallways. Many local residents remember seeing these. When both facilities closed, these photographs were donated to the Lawrence County Historical Society.


Deciding that these treasured items should not be kept in storage but should continue to be shared with the community, the Historical Society Board approached the Lawrence County Memorial Hospital and asked if they had a place to hang them. And they did!


Now when you walk through the halls of the hospital, you will see scenes of forgotten days in Lawrence County and these photographs will once again hang on the walls of a Lawrence County health care facility.
