ARCHIVES 30th ANNIVERSARY
Mission Community Archives was officially 30 years old on February 25th.
Established in 1989 by the Mission District Historical Society, the Mission Community Archives houses a vivid, first-hand account of the Mission area's storied past. It is a treasure trove of information documenting over 125 years of the community's history, including its social, economic, and political development.
The Archives is housed in a custom-built 3000 square foot facility - the first of its kind in the Fraser Valley - which was opened in 1994 - 25 years ago this year.
Constructed by the District of Mission and leased by the Historical Society, the facility offers a spacious, secure, environmentally-controlled vault for records with a storage capacity in excess of 4,000 linear feet and optimal space to support the other operations of the archives, including records processing, reference services and public programming.
This milestone year will be celebrated during Culture Days weekend at the end of September. A variety of programs and activities are planned and we like everyone to join us.
