Please join us for coffee, tea, and bagels as we learn about local history! William R. Hilderbrand owned a camera shop and portrait studio in Moses Lake in the early 1950s until 1970; his family donated the images to the City of Moses Lake Museum. We have finally finished rehousing the over 40,000 negatives and photographs and will be sharing examples of the different types of images in this collection, which include family portraits, passport photos, and baby sittings.
