Keith Vincent

WHY DO I COLLECT?
My name is Keith Vincent and I've been collecting postcards of county courthouses for over 20 years. I love architecture and history, and this collection began as an attempt to limit my selection of postcards. Now, 14,000 cards later, I have accumulated at least one postcard from every county (or parish) in the country. The collection is primarily of professional postcards, but in some cases only amateur cards are available. Therefore, my quest to find a professional card of every courthouse structure, including recent ones, continues...

MORE THAN COLLECTING 
Another integral part of this passion is actually visiting the courthouses. I have traveled to over 2500 counties in 44 states and will continue to visit the remaining counties or new structures in counties I've already been to. The traveling provides me with a genuine love for various parts of the country and "Small Town America". 

MORE THAN POSTCARDS
In addition to my postcard collection, I'm also an Associate Pastor at Mt. Airy Baptist Church in Mt. Airy, Maryland. I enjoy leading worship, especially from the piano or keyboard. I also like college football, political science and a good cup of coffee.
