Emery County Archives open house was held Oct. 28-29 from noon until 5 p.m. on the second floor of the old Emery County Courthouse. Dottie Grimes is the curator. Quite a number of people came from Emery County to see what was in the Archives. Richard and Diane Morley came from Price to take a tour of the Archives. Some others on the tour were James Nielsen, Gary and Glenna Kofford, Laurie Pitchforth, and Marilyn and Phil Fauver.

During the Archive tour a discussion of how old photos, histories and donated antique items were preserved, was presented by Grimes. The cabinets where oral and written histories of Emery County residents were opened for investigation by the visitors. Many old photographs of early homes and people were on display.

In the Archives there are many maps, photos, oral and written histories of present and former residents of Emery County.

The Montell Seeley display was prominent with its display of photos, books and journals.

The Emery County Progress newspapers are stored here from the late 1800s to the present covering many shelves. These collections in the Archives and the Emery County Progress on file are great resources for genealogists looking for information about Emery County residents and history.

The Archives are normally open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon until 5 p.m. The Emery County Archives is always on the search for historical photos and information concerning Emery County.

Donations are always accepted. If you have suffered the loss of a loved one and don't know what to do with their historic photos or letters and items, you can make a donation to the Emery County Archives.
