                      Free Scanning Week Event! 

                               July 15 - 19, 2019

County employees are invited to bring both historic and contemporary photographs, documents, and other records to have digital images created for future generations.

Staff will scan the materials and record any information the owner shares about each piece. All originals will be returned along with a digital copy of the scans on a flash drive. The County Historian’s Office will then make the images available to researchers.

Appointments are necessary!  For more information contact us:
