The Local History Collection

The Local History collection contains photographs, pamphlets, maps, books, scrapbooks, periodicals, newspaper clippings, and materials on microfilm. Because many of the materials are rare and fragile, Local History items are for in-house use only.

Photographs

Many of the photographs have been scanned and are available online.
