What’s in your storage?

By | Donations, Editor's Pick, Newsletter | No Comments

Are you cleaning out a closet, garage, or Grandma’s attic?  Perhaps you have an antique that’s too good to throw away but doesn’t have a home with you any longer.  The Oro Valley Historical Society’s Collection Committee is seeking items that might have some local historical significance from the early 1900s that could be displayed at the Pusch Ranch House and/or the Oro Valley Public Library or used as reference materials to do historical research.

Please contact Sue Chambasian at schambasian@gmail.com to set up an appointment to have your item reviewed by one of our Collections committee members.  Thank you for keeping Oro Valley history alive!
