Vintage Waterville

We are excited about the upcoming publication of Vintage Waterville, the next volume in our Vintage Communities Book Series. In this book, we will present photographs taken from our photo archive, as well as from the collections of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library and the Waterville Historical Society. These pictures range from famous landmarks (the Columbian House, the old railroad bridge) to more obscure homes and outbuildings that, although not widely known, tell the story of Waterville in all its variety. We will not attempt in this book to tell the full story of Waterville. We have a very different purpose. We want, instead, to use these photographs to suggest the breadth of life as it has been lived, and still is lived, in Waterville. And, even more importantly, we hope that by making this suggestion, others will be intrigued enough to help us expand on the story by sharing their memories of Waterville, whether those memories are stored in the mind or are reflected in aging photos that have gone unviewed for years.
