The Lewis homestead, shown in the 1940s after a snowstorm, was located in the Lewiston Community (formerly Sardis) where Lewiston Elementary School is today. Lou Ann Penland can be seen on the steps. The Columbia County News-Times is assisting a local group to establish a digital photo archive of life in Columbia County prior to 1960. Photos that depict school activities or show buildings or businesses that are no longer around are of particular interest. E-mail photos to staff photographer Jim Blaylock at email@example.com or deliver them to the Columbia County News-Times at 4272 Washington Road in the Publix Shopping Center. Photos will be copied and returned.
