June Reid and Blount County Memorial museum curator Amy Rhudy show off just one of the hundreds of historical pictures featuring the Blount Springs area now on display at the museum. All photos were donated by Reid and her late husband Thomas. The couple spent years gathering the collection, which includes the Blount Springs Hotel, the Jackson House, waterfalls, the old grocery store, and an array of family photos. Most photos were taken during the 40s and 50s when Blount Springs was in its heyday.
