Fort Thomas Celebrated 100 Years in 1967

The Kenton Co. Library’s online historic photo album, Faces and Places, just added the 100,000th photo to its database. This online album was created when the history staff at the Kenton County Public Library began digitizing some of its resources. They were digitizing documents and family files so that genealogy researchers around the world could obtain the information they needed without having to incur the cost of travel expenses. The staff then added photos to the mix, therefore creating Faces and Places.

The popularity of the photograph collection easily lent itself to a digital format.

  1. It would be interesting to know if the pictures from the Kenton Co. Public Library of Ft. Thomas were a result of my father Paul J. Kirst who was a professional photographer in Fort Thomas. I believe he donated many photos of historical Ft. Thomas over the years. He has since passed back in Feb. of 2002. It would be nice to see him have created for his photographs. Thanks.

  2. We would love to bring back a lot of what happened at the 100th Celebration! Please tell us your stories! I would love to add to our events for the week long celebration!!
