Local History

The North Olympic Library system sponsors a local newspaper index to articles and obituaries from current local newspapers. The index provides citations for articles and obituaries in Port Angeles newspapers. It covers local events from 1993 through 2010, and obituary listings from 1916 to the present. Limited access to the Sequim Gazette is available as well. Full-text articles from Port Angeles papers and the Sequim Gazette can be retrieved from microfilm and/or bound copies in the Port Angeles Library. The library also has digital copies of many local historical newspapers printed from 1886 onward available for viewing.

The Library also maintains a digital archive of the Kellogg Collection of historical local photographs.

For more information about these resources or obtaining copies, please contact the Port Angeles Main Library at 360.417.8500 or .
