The Oregon Archives Crawl is back!

Join us Saturday, October 20th to explore Changing Attitudes. Archives document how communities, beliefs, practices, and preferences have changed over the years.  Historical records and photos can shed new light on common beliefs or explain how things have come to pass.  With more than 30 organizations participating, you are guaranteed to discover something new!

Start the Crawl at any of these locations: City of Portland Archives & Records Center, the Oregon Historical Society or the Multnomah County Library. At each site you’ll find representatives from archives, special collections, and heritage organizations. “Passports” are available at each site to help guide you and provide a list of organizations. From young, old, and in-between to vintage photo lover to history buff to scholar to student to genealogist to building researcher to those who are just curious to learn something new: everyone is welcome.
