Over the next six months, the Butte County Historical Society will be expanding our on line presence. We will be adding interesting historical presentations and developing our on line research capabilities. The History Bits tab has interesting bits of history for your enjoyment. Our archives have grown considerably since 1956. On the Research tab, we will present excerpts from the archives on line, photos, documents, maps, newspaper articles and some family histories. Although impossible to place all the material in our archives on line, we have a dedicated staff to help you with your research. On the Research tab, see the information for Researchers if you would like assistance. We hope these new changes will help the community appreciate our magnificent history and those researching their family's history to better understand where their ancestors lived. If you are in the area, stop by one of our five facilities. The BCHS Museum offers a lot to see and has a vast collection of books for sale. The Ehmann Home, Bangor Church and Oregon City School are a delightful step back in time. See the About Our Facilities section for more information on all our sites. We hope you enjoy our new look and please check back as we add additional information. Your Butte County Historical Society staff, June 10, 2020
