Granite Falls Museum Puts Photos On Line

Granite Falls, WA Historical Museum Puts 5000 Historic Photos On Line

Known for its displays of old technology, the Granite Falls Historical Museum is using new technology to build a wider audience.

Museum volunteers have put about 5,000 historic photos - its entire collection - online.

The museum has accumulated photos and other historic items since it opened in 1971. But there's a difference between collecting and a collection, museum spokesman Fred Cruger said.

"Now, we're trying to make it accessible," he said.

Officials have built a database of old photos and maps. Later this year, they hope to break ground on a new 3,000-square-foot building.
