Join us every Tuesday morning to see a new vintage photograph featuring the landmarks and people of Upshur County's bygone days.
This week we're honoring one of Buckhannon's own:
Mr. Leonard MacTaggart "Pare" Lorentz
Pare was an American filmmaker known for his film work about the New Deal. Born Leonard MacTaggart Lorentz in Clarksburg, West Virginia, he was educated at Buckhannon High School, West Virginia Wesleyan College and West Virginia University.
CLICK HERE to watch a video about Mr. Lorentz' achievements, as well as two of the movies that made him FDR's Filmmaker.
Revisit us here every week to see new additions as we continue to build this virtual online pictorial for our community. The Vintage Buckhannon official website is coming soon!
