Our annual Treasures in the Archives event is an opportunity to see highlights from one of the largest collections of historic materials about Western Pennsylvania.
The archivists who work with these items every day will share the rarely heard stories behind some of their favorite collections. Collections featured in past Treasures in the Archives included building movers, boxers, old saloons, famous families, overlooked neighborhood stories, and even a party for Pittsburgh ex-pats held in Chicago.
This signature event on the Detre Library & Archives calendar is a chance to learn about the lives of Western Pennsylvanians through one-of-a-kind photographs and documents.
Admission to the Treasures in the Archives program is free but does not include access to History Center exhibitions. Please register in advance using the form below.
