First Annual Oregon Archives Crawl a Success! - Printable Version - October 7, 2010 - 0 Comments

Thanks to everyone who helped us get the word out about the first annual Oregon Archives Crawl and to those who “crawled” between each location.  We were thrilled with the steady stream of visitors coming through our door, many of whom had never been to our facility or to any archive. 

 

Here are a few pictures from the day. Enjoy!
