Biographical / Historical

Homer Fauntleroy (1866-1952) was a descendant of an early family in New Harmony, Indiana. He managed the local Cumberland Telephone Company, but resigned in 1909 to pursue his love of photography. Fauntleroy documented much of the architecture and daily life in New Harmony with his photographs from 1898 until his death. He and his sister, Mary Emily, were instrumental in preserving the town's history, which included the historic Fauntleroy home.
