Alberni District Historical Society and Community Archives

The public is welcome to come in person to do research in the Archives, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. For archives enquiries please e-mail [email protected]. You can also find us on Facebook @ Alberni District Historical Society.

The Alberni District Historical Society manages the Community Archive Collection, which is located in the Alberni Valley Museum building. Dedicated volunteers acquire and preserve the community’s paper treasures, which are then made available to the public. Enquiries about this extensive collection are welcome.

The Society encourages the public to add to the collection by bringing in items that tell the story of our community, such as documents, letters, records, Minutes or other memorabilia. If you have anything you feel should be added to the archives or you are unsure about, make sure you bring it in. The Society holds several informative meetings in the museum throughout the year, each meeting features an interesting guest speaker and the public is always welcome.

Today’s information is tomorrow’s history.
