Oregon Archives Crawl - Join us on October 2nd - Printable Version - September 1, 2010 - 0 Comments

I know you haven't heard from us in quite awhile. We have been busy in the Research Room and planning for our Oregon Archives Month event which we hope you will attend (details below).

 

You’ve heard of Pub Crawls, but have you ever heard of an Archives Crawl?

Neither had we, so we created one!Oregon Archives Crawl poster

Everyone is invited to join us for the first annual Oregon Archives Crawl this October in celebration of Oregon Archives Month.  Walk, bike, run, or crawl between four different downtown locations and learn what local archives have to offer researchers, students, genealogists, scholars, homeowners, history buffs, and the curious of any age. We have something for everyone, old and young, native Oregonian and visitor passing through, professional and novice.

Travel at your leisure between the Portland Archives and Records Center, the Portland State University Library, Multnomah County Central Library and the Oregon Historical Society.  At each place you can tour the facilities and participate in activities that bring history to life. The Oregon Historical Society and the Multnomah County Central Library will also be hosting displays by other area archives including the Oregon Jewish Museum, Willamette University, Oregon State Archives, Lewis & Clark College, the Oregon State University, the Mazamas and the Washington County Museum. Each location and participating organization will have family friendly activities throughout the day.

A free Archives Crawl “passport” will be issued to help you navigate the crawl. A fully stamped passport enters you in a raffle drawing at our After Party at the Oregon Historical Society, where there will be light refreshments, live music and a whole lot of fun.

Join us for the first annual Oregon Archives Crawl and become a part of history!
