Temporary Closure of Archives
Due to the evolving situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and the need for social distancing to help minimize its transmission, the Mission District Historical Society is temporarily closing the Mission Community Archives to visitors and researchers until further notice. The health, safety, and well-being of our community, including our dedicated staff and volunteers, is a top priority.
At present, the Archivist intends to provide services to the public remotely as best she can by telephone, email, and other digital platforms. Any change to these coronavirus-related measures will be posted. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented public health challenge.
For up to date information, please email
the archives or leave a telephone message and you will be contacted as soon as possible.
