Lewisburg Photography Club – Lewisburg Architecture Challenge May 1-2

posted: April 12, 2021

Downtown Lewisburg’s architecture is a photographer’s dream.  Walking a few blocks, one can view and photograph Federalist, Greek Revival, Tuscan Villa, Gothic Revival, Victorian, Beaux Arts, and Art Deco styles! With directions and a sharp eye, one can view many interesting architectural elements such as “lie on your stomach” windows, fan lights, shutter dogs, and star tie rods.

The Lewisburg Photography Club challenges photographers of all abilities to walk around downtown Lewisburg and take great photos of Lewisburg architecture on Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2.  Two self-guided walking tours have been designed to help explore the architecture of Lewisburg.  The first tour visits interesting architectural sites along Market Street from the Post Office to the Susquehanna River. The second tour also starts at the Post Office but travels down South Third Street to Bucknell’s President’s House.

An annotated map of downtown Lewisburg and the directions for the two walking tours can be found on the Lewisburg Photography Club’s website at  The map and directions can also be picked up from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday, May 1 at the Lewisburg Photography Club’s table in Hufnagle Park during the Lewisburg Arts Council’s Arts in the Park! fair showcasing local arts organizations.

Photographers of all ages and skills can submit up to three of their best shots of Lewisburg architecture to be displayed in a month-long online Photo Show on the Photo Club’s website.
