Visit the History Center

The Local History Collection is available for use when the History Center is open. If your research will involve extensive assistance, please call (714) 288-2465 in advance for an appointment or to have materials gathered for your research. All materials are for in-library use only and do not check out. You can order copy prints of our historical photographs; plan for a minimum turnaround time of one week.  Our historic Digital Collection consisting of photographs, local city directories and newspapers, and oral histories is available 24/7.
