Upcoming OCHS Office Hours!

 

The OCS office and archives are open on the last Saturday of every month, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Board members and/or volunteers will be available to assist you with your research questions and help you discover what materials we have.

Upcoming scheduled dates include Saturday, June 24, July 29, August 26, and September 30. We hope to soon be open by appointment as well but that’s dependent on volunteer availability.

We’re located next to the blacksmith shop on the grounds of the Heritage Museum of Orange County, 3101 W. Harvard St., Santa Ana. Click here for a map of the Heritage Museum’s location. Click here for a pdf showing the location of the office/archive. If you are interested in volunteering on any of those days, please contact us.

We hope to see you there!
