You've heard of Pub Crawls, but have you ever heard of an Archive Crawl?

Neither had we, so we created one.

Everyone is invited to join us the first annual Oregon Archives Crawl
this fall in celebration of Archives month. Walk, bike, run, or crawl
between 4 different downtown locations and learn about what local
archives have to offer researchers, students, genealogists, scholars,
homeowners, history buffs, etc. We have something for everyone, old and
young, native Oregonian and visitor passing through, professional and

Travel between the Portland Archives and Records Center, the Portland
State University Millar Library, Multnomah County Central Library and
the Oregon Historical Society, where you can tour the facilities and
participate in activities that bring history to life. The Oregon
Historical Society and the Multnomah County Central Library have the
added benefit of 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

An Archives Crawl "passport" will be issued that will help you navigate
the crawl. A fully stamped passport will also enter you into a raffle
drawing at our After Party at the Oregon Historical Society, where there
will be a light refreshments, live music and a whole lot of fun.
