Historic Ogle County farm photos sought

May 28, 2019 GMT

OREGON – Ogle County Newspapers, a division of Shaw Media, is looking for photographs that depict Ogle County farm scenes and farming operations over the last 100 years or more.

The photos will be used in OCN’s upcoming Century of Farming section, which will be published in mid-June.

“The older the better,” Editor Vinde Wells said. “We want to give our readers a glimpse of what living on a farm in Ogle County looked like in our grandparents day and the generations before.”

Information identifying any people who are pictured, what is happening, and where it took place should accompany the photos, which are needed by June 10.


Photos can be emailed to vwells@oglecountynews.com or dropped off at the Ogle County Newspapers office in the Dixon Telegraph building, 113 S. Peoria Ave. in Dixon.

Photos will be scanned and returned.

Contact Wells at at 815-732-6166, ext. 5903, or vwells@oglecountynews.com for more information.
