Online Collections

Welcome to the Awbury Arboretum’s online collections!

This important project has been five years in the making, and could not have been completed without the support of our staff, volunteers, and neighbors. We would like to thank Gay Johnson for her work and support here in the archives, and for her many years of tireless advocacy for the Arboretum. This project would also not have been possible without the many donations of photographs we have received over the years. Thank you!

The purpose of this portion of the Awbury Arboretum archive’s website is to allow the public to search, view and order images available in our archives, and access information associated with them. To use this portion of the website, there are several options.

To begin, click here. You will be directed to the “Keyword Search” page. Enter one or more search terms related to Germantown businesses, personal names, locations etc should you know any, and then click “Search.” You will then be given a list of results. We have found that this is generally one of the most effective search tools available on this portion of the website.

You may also search by using the “Click and Search” button found on the “Keyword Search” page. You can also search by alphabetical listing your topic of interest, or title. For example, should you be interested in all photographs of or associated with the Francis Cope House, search under “F.”

For more detailed searches, use the “Advanced Search” button.

For a sampling of materials, click on “Random Images.”
