The Sacramento Archives Crawl turns 10 this year, but physical distancing protocols means the event can’t take place in person, so we are going online with a monthlong virtual celebration in October for National Archives Month.
Throughout October, we invite you to check the Sacramento Archives Crawl Facebook page for daily videos, Facebook Live tours, and photo exhibits from 17 archives and special collections libraries around the Sacramento region. You will see treasures from their collections, go on virtual tours of their storage vaults, and participate in virtual tours and sessions.
The theme this year is “Sacramento Archives Crawl: Celebrating 10 Years!” Some of the videos and exhibits at this year’s virtual Crawl will focus on women’s suffrage, film digitization and preservation, photo preservation and restoration, Sacramento’s 1922 “Days of ’49” event, the Lodi Grape Festival, St. Mary’s Chapel in Rocklin, historic Folsom residents, and the DeWitt Hospital in Auburn.
We will also offer video and Facebook Live tours of the California State Archives, California State Library, California State Railroad Museum Library & Archives, Center for Sacramento History, University of the Pacific Holt-Atherton Special Collections and Archives, and Yolo County Archives & Records Center. Take a crawl through history!
