Multnomah County Archives collects and preserves archival records created by the County government. 

Archival records are those that have been:

  • identified for permanent retention on agency records retention schedules
  • included in the Multnomah County Historical Records Inventory, or 
  • created in 1920 or earlier.

We strive to make the Archives accessible for all. To that end, we will work to make your research as straight-forward as possible.
