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.


Calling all Waterville Historians (or any other history buffs)

Each week we post a mysterious photo. We need help identifying it and you all come to our aid and chip in. Whether you are familiar with the area or simply know the tools to find detailed information you have proven yourself time and time again!

The historic Columbian House, Waterville, OH.

So, as we move on to our next book, we need your help! The photos that will end up in our next volume, Vintage Waterville, all have a mysterious quality to them and we need to discover them. So, if you are interested check out the directions below and jump in! We will be posting some of the photos to Facebook and getting as many people involved as possible, and we would love to have you!

Vintage Sylvania

In just under one week we will have a party celebrating the publishing of our first book! The book is called Vintage Sylvania, and it will be available on June 16th. Check out this article from The Toledo Blade.

It’s not a history of Sylvania, although there’s a lot of history in it. It’s not a coffee table book, although it contains more pictures than words. The staff at Perrysburg-based Vintage Aerial say the company’s first book, Vintage Sylvania, will be a sentimental journey of sorts for anyone who lived or lives in the Sylvania area, who appreciates local history, and who might have fond memories of the places depicted in its pages.
