Boone County Photo Gallery - Homes, Buildings & Scenes

I love old family photographs, they are one of my most cherished items! Having the ability of being able to connect a face to our written genealogy brings real life to the pages. I hope you will discover a photograph of your ancestor in this gallery, and I also hope you will share your old family photographs with us. Use the Submit Data link on the top of the page to send copies of your photos. Any old photographs with a Boone County connection are welcome ... individuals, buildings, houses, geographical locations, cemeteries, gravestones, etc. The only requirement is that we do not post photographs of living individuals without their consent, and usually only photographs of individuals taken more than fifty years ago, and thus of more genealogical interest.

Do you recognize someone in the Photo Gallery? Can you add more information? Send me your comments and I'll add them here and on the photograph entry.

Note from Julie Townsend: "The family home of Thomas & Golda (Staton) Bohannon. He died in Whitestown, but I'm not sure whether this home was there or somewhere else in Boone County. I would presume Whitestown. They had 7 children, so I'm not sure which two these are."

Boone County Courthouse - Lebanon, Indiana

Shown are various exterior and interior photographs of the beautiful Boone County Courthouse in Lebanon, Indiana. Photographed and submitted by Boone County researchers; Jeany Garrison Roark and Roberta Lewis.

Jeany pointed out the very old-style, and seldom now seen, elevator located in the courthouse. And both ladies marveled at the beauty of the glass dome viewed from the lobby.

Shockley & Isley Family Farms - near Jamestown

"Up from Rush County, John and Barbara (Hilligoss) Shockley bought their first land spanning Union and Eel River Townships starting in 1854 from pioneer Samuel Penry. My parents Loren T. and Susie Isley and grandparents George K. and Sarah Jane (Shockley) Isley’s farmhouse is 100 yards west of John Shockley’s. Sadly, US 74 now dissect the two farms where the freeway crosses the county line."

Old Lebanon High School - From Meridian Street - 2007

Street in Lebanon - 1909

Title: Street view with streetcar in background, Lebanon, Indiana.

The Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division.

Can you identify this street?

  • 9/29/2007 - Comment and current photos by Bill Sanders: "I believe that road is Meridian Street, and the large brick building near the end is the old Lebanon High School. [When I took the photo] I was probably a block or so further than the old picture. You can just make out some bricks through the trees on the right side.. that's the HS, now a retirement housing and fitness center." Bill goes on to say that the old high school had a newer addition added to it as a gym, and is visible in his photo. Some of the homes are now gone, but many of the original homes are still there, though some may have been changed through remodeling. The original Meridian Street and surrounding streets may have been altered also, per Bill.
