One of the most surprising things about researching a small town like Wardensville is that there is much more than meets the eye. There will always be more photos, objects, and memories that we can never track down ourselves ; which is why we need your help. This blog post is an open call for all things relating to the history of Wardensville. Here’s a small example list of what we are searching for: 

Photos of old buildings in or around town 

Family photos

Letters of importance 

Items from Wardensville’s past (ex: cameras, pins, railroad stakes, etc.)

Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list! If you’re unsure that what you have is what we are or are not looking for, just ask. We also want to highlight that this is an open call to both current and past residents.  For more information or questions, please contact Chelsea at chelsea@farmsworkwonders.org.
