While in Pennsylvania I visited the Monroe County Historical Association’s museum. The association has taken up permanent residence in Stroud Mansion. A beautiful 12 room Georgian-style mansion built in 1795 by Jacob Stroud for his son, John. There is a research library and a rotating exhibit along with the permanent collection. It is an absolute gem. I highly, recommend stopping in if you ever make it to Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Until then here a few of my favorite photos from my visit.
I took these recently. I love a good black and white photograph. I think taking out color has a way of taking out some of the unnecessary noise. Helps you to focus on the subject better. To see the story unfold more clearly.
