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.
Many of the photographs have been scanned and are available online.
Obituaries are a great resource for genealogical research. Local obituaries date back as far as 1932.
Local History has a large historical newspaper collection.
Many items in the Local History Collection are available online. Search for treasures from the past, from the comfort of home!
