The Photos of Charles Lewis Adams

Charles Lewis Adams was a studio photographer from Winchester, KY before entering the Marines during World War II.

The museum has obtained a collection of Adams photographs. We are in hopes that our viewers might be able to identify some of these photos of Marines taken on Emirau Island in the Pacific. His job was to take aerial photographs for bomb damage assessment.  But while on the island, Louie took numerous photos of his fellow soldiers, equipment, airplanes, and island inhabitants. See the photos.

THE BLUEGRASS HERITAGE MUSEUM seeks to bring the history of Central Kentucky to life by collecting, preserving, interpreting and exhibiting the material culture of the region known as the Bluegrass.

Located in a signature Romanesque Revival building on South Main Street in Winchester, the museum examines the history of the Bluegrass from European contact with Native Americans to the present.
