Local History Files

The Dundee Library has a collection of local history files that contain over 400 items, including: newspaper articles, photographs, documents/reports, correspondence, booklets/pamphlets, blueprints, maps, and more. We have gone through and digitized the entire collection to further preserve these items and make them more accessible to our patrons. The collection covers a variety of different topics pertaining to all/each of the communities in our district. Click on a photograph below to view that specific subcollection.
