The collection includes exterior and interior photographs of the home of John Jordan Cabell and Samuel Henry Early, 510 Main Street, Lynchburg, Virginia, as well as group photographs of Early family members, ca. 1900-1921. Prior to demolition of the Cabell-Early home ca. 1902, member of the family had photographs made of each room, some of which featured scenic wall decorations and Victorian era furnishings.

The John Jordan Cabell home was built ca. 1809. At his death in 1834, Cabell devised the home to his daughter, Henrian Cabell Early, wife of Samuel Henry Early. Members of the family continued to live in the house until 1902 when it was sold to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. The house was then demolished and replaced with the Elks clubhouse in 1904.
