Grey, green, and black and white: New at the Columns


September 25, 2013

MILFORD, PA — The Pike County Historical Society (PCHS) recently announced that its museum, The Columns, will head into the fall season with three new glimpses into Pike County’s history.

Pike County’s most published writer and fisherman extraordinaire, Zane Grey, is featured in a new exhibit. Many of Grey’s novels were made into movies, and the PCHS, in cooperation with film critic and Zane Grey West Society member Robert Lentz, plan on bringing these to you in the fall.

Stop in and take a look at what money looked like upon first issue through the First National Bank of Milford.

James Alfred Myer’s collection of glass plate negatives has been converted to provide glimpses into the past via black-and-white pictures. Many never-before-seen photographs are now viewable and in the archives of the museum’s library. Some of these will be exhibited in conjunction with a book signing and discussion with Peter Myer, grandson of James Alfred Myer, and the photos will remain on display through September.

Fall hours for the museum from September through December are Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., or, by appointment. Call 570/296-8126.
