The CHS Archives Committee is responsible for the collection,
preservation, and archiving of materials relating to the history of
Corrales. These include historic maps, old photographs, oral histories
on audio tape and on video, censuses, genealogical information,
Corrales historic building survey forms, newspaper articles, copies of
old local newspapers, and histories of Corrales, most of them written
by local residents.
In 2004 the committee organized a panel discussion
featuring talks by long-time residents and this will probably become an
annual event. The committee helps produce special exhibits such as a
show of photographic portraits of some Corrales residents, a Corrales
history display at the Corrales Visitors Center, and a Harvest Festival
exhibit. The committee meets usually on Wednesdays and occasionally
takes field trips to other history archives. We welcome new members.
Please call Mary Davis at 898-5017, if you are interested.
