Wanamaker, Keathley preserving local history
Museum provides glimpse of past
Placeholder Image
Warren County history is alive and well at the Southern Museum and Galleries of Photography, Culture and History on Main Street. Partners Monty Wanamaker and Chris Keathley have dedicated themselves to years of researching local history, from the well-known to the relatively obscure.An accomplished artist, Wanamaker says that although he always had a passing interest in history, the history part of his life truly began when he opened an art gallery and shop in which he displayed his art on Morford Street in the late 1990s. In 2000, Wanamaker opened a museum in a building adjacent to the gallery.
