It’s worth the climb to the third floor of the May-Stringer Museum. You’ll find yourself in the base of the tower and at the entrance to the fascinating attic.
This small area serves as an exhibit space for a collection of cameras and photographs. Professional photographers plied their trade during the Civil War. Soldiers often ’sat for their likeness’ so their families would have something to remember them by if they didn’t make it home from the War. Studio portraits were common after the War.
