Photographs in the Trondhjem Museum Collection

At out last museum committee meeting, Sandy Johnson Valek brought a package of old photographs she is donating from her late aunt Ruth Johnson Little’s collection. Included were several fascinating farm photos of the Louis and Petra Johnson family farm and many photos of people in the Trondhjem community in the early to mid-20th century. This is exactly what the museum committee is pursuing. We receive photos of the Trondhjem and surrounding communities. Sometimes people want to keep their originals but are happy to allow us to copy them and add them to our digital collection for future generations to view and we will preserve the hard copies in our historic collection.

Other people have photos that they want to donate, knowing that they will be available far into the future for others to view and they’ll be carefully preserved in our fire safe. So, if you have photos that would be relevant to the Trondhjem Community, we would be pleased to either copy them and return the originals to you or save them. In either case, they would become a part of the preserved Trondhjem history. We have calls and letters and visits from the descendants of early residents. We can often show them our old photos of their families. The Trondhjem museum can serve to preserve important information from your collection for future generations.
