We want YOU to join us for the 2016 Oregon Archives Crawl!

The Oregon Archives Crawl is back and we want YOU to “crawl” between the City of Portland Archives & Records Center, the Oregon Historical Society and the Multnomah County Library where you can explore our region’s history with 28 local archives, special collections and heritage organizations. Celebrate National Archives Month while discovering the wealth of information that can be found in your local archives. Whether your interests include the history of Japanese internment, the impacts of urban renewal on Portland, or resources for finding your family’s history, the Oregon Archives Crawl has something for everyone.

We call upon young and old, history buff and scholar, vintage photo lover, genealogist, building researcher and those who are just curious to stand up and be counted on Saturday, October 8th between 11 and 3. Archives are for everyone, so show your support by attending the 2016 Oregon Archives Crawl!
