The Association maintains the BORINA ARCHIVE and ALZORA SNYDER & JANE BORG RESEARCH CENTER as a rich resource for researchers, writers, teachers, students, genealogists and others interested in local history.
The Archive has numerous collections of information and physical artifacts documenting various aspects of our community's history. There are thousands of photographs and documents in the following file collections: family, business, organization, agriculture, church, school, building and homes. There are also map, poster, album, small artifact, directory, postcard, apple label, oral history, book and art collections. Some special collections include Betty Lewis, William Weeks, Charley Parkhurst and the extensive costume collection. The Volck Museum and Tank House contain the larger artifact collections. Access to these collections is by membership or through special arrangement.
