“The best history doesn’t just sit
behind a glass case; it helps us to
understand what’s outside the case.”
Please consider making your own contribution to the story of our past.
We are interested in expanding our collection of photographs, artifacts, and documents. Please let us know if you have items you would be interested in donating. All donation offers must be reviewed by our Collections Committee which meets monthly.
While we are grateful for all offers, our Collections Policy requires that items accessioned into the collection have relevance to the history of Rainier Valley.
Current priorities for collecting include
- items that reflect the wider Rainier Valley community, beyond Columbia City
- items that reflect cultural diversity and the post-WWII era
Please contact Katharine Anthony, Archives and Programs Manager if you would like to discuss a collections donation.
