Have you ever wanted to research your family’s past, or wondered about the history of your home? Are you interested in the history of the area and its services and special attractions?

The Mission Community Archives is home to a broad range of records to answer your questions, including local government records, manuscripts, maps and drawings, photographs, artwork, oral histories, local newspapers, and audio-visual recordings.

Dating from the late 1890s to the present, the Community Archives has information for almost everyone – whether you are a long-time resident or new to the community, a local business, a genealogist, a journalist, a student, a teacher, a local government official, local historian, or tourist. Everyone is welcome to visit the archives and explore Mission’s past first-hand.

The Mission Community Archives is celebrating its 30th anniversary during Culture Days with a special open house from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28.

The event will feature interactive information stations about the services and treasures housed in the archives, a series of poster exhibits on Mission’s storied past that include defining moments in the community’s history, the launch of new services, games testing your knowledge of community heritage, a free draw and much more.
