Many adults say childhood passes quickly. A photography museum has made more than 60 childhoods timeless.
The Jeffcoat Photography Studio Msuem’s new exhibit, Children of Dickinson County, will display antique photos of local children who are now grown. Some of the adults still live in the county.
The exhibit will feature 45 photos by Bill Jeffcoat, a photographer who took over the studio in 1966. The Jeffcoat family operated the studio for more than 80 years.
Amy Feigley, education coordinator and curator of the museum, said the exhibit will likely feature some familiar faces.
“If you or a family member happened to live in or near Abilene during Bill’s career, chances are there is a picture of you at Jeffcoat Photography Studio Museum,” Feigley said.
To assist with identification of individuals in the photos, visit the museum’s Facebook page at facebook.com/jeffcoatstudio.
The exhibit will run Sept. 3 – Nov. 26. The museum’s hours will be 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays. Admission is free.
