Photos, Documents and Maps
The Healdsburg Museum has an impressive collection of historical photographs of events, activities, people, buildings, businesses, places, aerial and scenic views of Healdsburg and Sonoma County. To date, over 16,000 photographs have been digitized, archived and preserved thanks to a photo scanning program that has been implemented by a dedicated cadre of volunteers who are entering data weekly.
The historical images are available for public viewing free of charge at the Museum and can be reproduced in a variety of forms for a fee.
The archives at the Museum’s Research Center contain thousands of original historical documents and ephemera relating all aspects of the region's history. Primary documents, such as deeds, marriage certificates, personal letters, and ranch ledgers, are organized and filed by subject. Other documents, such as photocopies of newspaper articles or family trees are organized by topic and filed into subject files for research use.
The Healdsburg Museum has a large collection of historic Healdsburg and Sonoma County maps. All maps are available for public viewing; many are available for duplication.
