The museum has more than 12,000 photos and a large collection of negatives from the Sprauer Studio. These photos help visitors to the museum connect to the past in the ability to see a moment captured in time. Also, many people will find pictures of their ancestors, friends, and family. Is it a joyous moment when someone connects to a photo in the Dubois County Musuem’s collection.

People wanting to donate photos or other items to the museum are urged to contact the museum’s Collection Committee before bringing in the items. For information, please call the Collections Chairperson Mary Ann Hayes at 812-634-7733 or email mhayes@duboiscountymuseum.org.
