The museum has more than 19,300 photos and a large collection of negatives and images from the Sprauer Studio, the Chase Studio, the Patmore Studio, and Robert McCarty Photography.

These photos help visitors to the museum connect to the past in the ability to see a moment captured in time. Also, many people will find pictures of their ancestors, friends, and family. Is it a joyous moment when someone connects to a photo in the Dubois County Museum’s collection.

People wanting to donate photos or other items to the museum are urged to contact the museum’s Collection Committee before bringing in the items. For information, please call the Collections Chairperson Mary Ann Hayes at 812-634-7733 or email [email protected].
