Contest Photo

The Second place winner of the Lunenburg County Historical Society Annual Photography Contest in the black and white photo category was Dynasty Logan. Dynasty is a student in the photography class of Mr. Brian Nowlin at Central High School of Lunenburg. Dynasty’s photo featured the Confederate monument at Lunenburg Courthouse. Future plans for the monument depend upon the outcome of the referendum on the ballot in this year’s November election. The historical society is grateful to all who entered the 2020 contest. Their participation has helped the society to collect a number of photos that are of historical significance.

Since the creation of the Lunenburg County Historical Society in 1999, the organization has attempted to preserve the history of sites in Lunenburg County through an annual photography contest. The contest encourages amateur photographers, who live either in Lunenburg or outside its boundaries, to capture current scenes that reflect the history of Lunenburg in photographs that were taken in the county during the past twelve months. There is a division for colored photos and for those done in black-and-white. The society is pleased to announce the top winners of the 2020 contest.
