The purpose of the Archives is to identify, acquire and preserve material of archival and/or informational value of the District and community as a whole, and to make such records available to the public. The Archives is open to the public during regular museum hours, but visitors wishing to access the archives for specific research purposes are asked to make an appointment with the Archivist. Appointments may be scheduled outside regular business hours for your research convenience.
