Gaines Mills - Ivy Hill: photographs of localities

The VHS maintains a series of photographic files of images of

  • Residences

  • Plantation homes

  • Public and private sites

  • Structures

  • Landscapes

These files may contain a combination of orginal photographs, prints and other images, along with copies of photographs, prints and other images from VHS holdings, from other repositories, or in private hands.

Researchers who determine that the VHS holds a photo file for a particular locality should then request an appointment to view that file to determine its exact contents. 

Researchers should also be aware that the VHS holds some photographs and other images in its manuscripts collection, usually as part of a collection of family or personal papers. Thus, a search of the online catalog is also advised.

This index is organized by the name of the place or structure, then by geographic area (town, city, county, etc.). Please note that places and structures located in the Richmond area (e.g. "Richmond, Va. - View of Capitol Square.") are listed under R in Painter - Rustburg.

To locate holdings concerning a particular locality, choose an index from below or search the online catalog.
