Public Library, Portsmouth, Ohio

Located at 1220 Gallia Street. Henry A. Lorberg induced Andrew Carnegie to donate $50,000 and this structure built of native stone was completed in 1903. The "Ohio Room" is devoted exclusively to Ohio and Northwest Territory history. Museum section displays Indian relics from local mounds. [from the back of the card]

The Indian relics mentioned were on loan and removed by the owner in the 1970s. They were donated to the Southern Ohio Museum and Cultural Center after his death.
