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, 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.
