GALENA OHIO FUTURE HISTORY
PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT

How the project came about:

Several years ago, Floyd Siebert was researching his family history in

Springfield, Illinois. He asked the librarian if they had photos of buildings

where key family members had worked. There were a few "great finds" but

for the most part the results were minimal or non-existent. The thought

crossed his mind that someone should be taking photographs today and

placing them in the library collection so 25 or 50 years from now, when

the younger generation asks the question "What did Sunbury or Galena look

like when... ?' the answer will be "Will these photos help"?


In early spring of 2018, Floyd was in the Community Library in Sunbury

and met Chauncey Montgomery, the Library director. He asked if the library

would be interested in a group of senior volunteer photographers taking

current photographs of the historic buildings around the village square.

Chauncey was favorable and the Community Library Future History Project

was created.


The project created two books

Community Library Future History Project A view of Sunbury Ohio

both past and present.

Community Library Future History Project A view of Galena Ohio

both past and present.


Photographers from the Westerville Senior Center and SourcePoint

photography groups were recruited to make the photographs. An effort was

made to photograph the buildings from the same angles of earlier

photographs to show the changes over the years.

Who helped:

This project could not have moved forward without the help of several key

people. Our thanks to John Bricker and John Bland of the Galena Historic

Foundation for research in the ever changing Village of Galena and for

providing old photos from the Helen Campbell Collection.

THE LEADERSHIP TEAM

Floyd Siebert created 'A View of Galena Ohio Both Past and Present'

Floyd Siebert created the Sunbury and Galena Future History Project with the Sunbury Community Library and maintained relationships with library leadership and staff throughout the project. Driving the community, he created maps to guide photographers to neighborhoods of interest. He recruited, trained and coached photographers to develop and maintain documentary standards for the images.
He restored historic images to bring back detail that was fading caused by limitations in older photographic processes. Floyd worked with John Bricker and John Bland from the Galena Historical Foundation to acquire historical photographs of Galena.

Adele Dunn

Adele Dunn is a skilled organizer and

served as a member of the Leadership Team.

She used her organizational skills to develop

a format for this book. She included

assembly of historic and current

photographs and data on local historic sites.

Her patience guided her through endless

additions and revisions as more of the

Galena story unfolded.


She used her photographic skills to

provide modern day images of businesses on

the Galena square along and

researched their site histories through

owners.



Phyllis Hollifield

Phyllis Hollifield was a valued

member of the Leadership Team. She

created and maintained the database of

historic and modern images to be

presented to the Galena's future

history. She has organized and formatted

the final copy of this book.


She actively participated as a

photographer, accepting multiple

assignments. To maintain her high-

standards, she made numerous

trips to Galena for reshoots. She

worked to duplicate the angle and

perspective of historic images. Another

strong asset was her personal coaching to

help fellow photographers maintain high

quality standards.

It is with the deepest gratitude that we thank the photographers. The

photographers are all "seniors" from the photography Group at the Westerville

Senior Center. For the most part they are fine arts photographers who interpret

images as art. In this project they had to maintain documentary standards
without

personal interpretation to protect the integrity of the project. A real challenge, but well done.

ACCURACY

Historical accuracy and a documentary photographic approach have been

foremost in thinking for the project team.


Names of business, locations and dates of operation though the years have

been researched based on documents and photographs available. Names and

names used in the historical information have been found in historic

documents and/or photographs. Comments from verbal memory from

individuals have been left out and await further verification.


When shooting the current photographs, photographers were required to

maintain documentary photojournalistic standards without creative additions

or subtractions. "This is the way it was when I took the photograph."


Historic images have been restored to improve contrast and bring back detail

and brightness obscured by the photographic process through the years.


We assume that as time goes by, we will hear of more information and of

course, some inaccuracies will need to be corrected. But today, this is our

best effort.

GALENA

Galena has changed dramatically over the years. Originally named Zoar, the

village name was changed after it was discovered that there was already a Zoar in Ohio.


In the early years, the village had several stores and manufacturing

companies. With the construction of Hoover Reservoir, the village was forced to

change. It is now a suburban community. It is growing as the Columbus

metropolitan area expands north.

In Memory of Floyd A. Siebert Jr.

January 15, 1931 - February 23, 2021

An extraordinary man, Floyd was passionate about
his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, his family and
about people. His love for photography not only
showed in his photographs but also in his dedication
to mentoring others in photography. His skills and
compassion will be missed.
