Elton H. L. (Henry Lee) Wade was an amateur photographer who lived in the Middlebush area of Franklin Township for most of his life. The collection presented here is a small sample of the over 2,000 photographs taken by Mr. Wade during his lifetime.
Our staff has been working relentlessly to try to scan, archive, and catalog each of these images. We’ve set up several online ‘exhibits’ for you to peruse, of some of Elton’s best and most interesting photographs. He has images of the 1939-1940 World’s Fair, the Hindenburg, and New Jersey legend Lucy the Elephant, among others. We are delighted to be able to share these photographs that document Mr. Wade’s life and that of the Franklin Township community in the early 20th century. Please check back frequently as new photographs will be added monthly!
For more information about Elton and the collection, please go here and click “Elton Wade Photograph Collection”.
Please visit the exhibit and let us know what you think! Also, if there’s a place, person or object you recognize that we didn’t catch, please let us know!

We are very please to have the Nature Tracker’s Club exhibit in our main entrance display in the lobby! This club is a group of 7-13 year olds who learn about endangered animals in a creative environment. One of the involved children was very enthusiastic about not only the project but getting to express herself creatively. If you’re interested in the type of things they do, please check out their website. Don’t forget to check out their exhibit the next time they come in!
