Treasures Found in the State Archives

The New Season of Monthly History Talks Kicks Off with Tracy Rebstock

We all have archives and perhaps haven’t even thought about it.  Personal papers, family photo albums, scrapbooks and meaningful artifacts from your past are all part of your personal archives.  While they may not be in a good state of organization, they are still treasures.  We here at the Olympia Tumwater Foundation have some very nice archives that are an important part of our community history.  We are working hard on a project to organize and digitize them to make them accessible to researchers.  It only seemed appropriate that we begin our new season of free monthly history talks here at the historic Schmidt House with an expert in archives, which we did on Thursday, October 15th at noon with guest speaker Tracy Rebstock.
