    Do you have historical photographs of Wilmington? We would love to include them in our digitized local history collection. We are interested in photographs taken prior to 1980 of buildings, sporting and social events, businesses and neighborhoods. You can bring up to ten photographs or postcards on Saturday, April 4 from 9:30 am to 12 noon and we will san them. Please bring a flash drive if you would like a copy of the digitized photos.
