Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is gearing up for the May 14 unveiling of the “Bethlehem Back When” exhibition, a selection of photos displayed on the second floor of the Luckenbach Mill.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a members’ reception slated for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
This is the first-ever exhibition dedicated to showcasing the photo collection, which spans decades and captures moments, big and small, in the lives of Bethlehem residents.
The project began as a community driven effort to digitize and catalogue a collection of over 8,000 photographs that were taken for Bethlehem Steel and catalogued prior to being donated to Historic Bethlehem in 1980. Volunteers from Bethlehem Historic District Association met weekly to scan and record the condition of the photographs.
