Oregon Archives Crawl

Saturday, October 18, 2014
10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Everyone is invited to join us for the 4th Oregon Archives Crawl this October in celebration of Oregon Archives Month.  Travel between the Portland Archives and Records Center, the Multnomah County Central Library and the Oregon Historical Society.  At each location there will be a variety of activities to choose from so you might want to start early.

The Portland Archives and Records Center (PARC) is happy to be hosting nine organizations this year (find the full list below).

At PARC, you will have the opportunity to:

- get a behind the scenes look at sampling of the many collections found in the City’s archives;

- listen to speakers talk about local historical records;

- and meet the archivists who manage some of the most exciting historical collections in Oregon, and view a selection of those materials up close. 

There will also be door prizes donated from the organizations onsite, drawn every 15-30 minutes throughout the event.  (You must be present to win, but we’re drawing often so that shouldn’t be a problem! One prize per person.)
