Dec 01, 2017, 10:00 AM – Jan 27, 2018, 4:00 PM

Clay County Heritage is proud to present:
"Capture. Life. Snapshots of Historic Spencer"

Photographer and owner of Marvin Burk Photography,
Rick Krebsbach, recently sold the Marvin Burk building
and donated over 200 negatives of Spencer to Clay County
Heritage.  Clay County Heritage viewed the negatives and
selected 60+ to have on display for the exhibit.  We worked
with Ken Olson Photography in Spirit Lake who scanned
the negatives, did touch up to the photos and did archival
prints of each photo.  Clay County Heritage will share the
history of many of the buildings in the photos and will also
have artifacts that relate to the businesses in the photos.
The photos are displayed in archival frames that Clay
County Heritage was able to purchase thanks to an award
from the Renaissance Initiative Grant. 

Clay County Heritage will also be selling prints of the photos.
Each photo will cost $60.00 for the print only or $100 for a
framed print. 

For more information, please call the Heritage Center at 262-3304
