Local History Room Collection

Take a virtual tour of our history room - narrated by Tim Carroll

history room 3

The Peninsula Community Library Local History Room (also known as the Johnson-Carroll Homestead Room) contains books that are specific to the history of Old Mission Peninsula (which can be checked out), and archival materials relating to Peninsula Township.  Many of the publications are written by local authors. 

In addition, on the 4th Tuesday of the month, at 2:00 p.m., you can attend a talk to learn about Old Mission history.  Call to reserve a spot. 

Our archival materials consist of numerous physical objects including documents, photos and maps. Please click on the links below to view the individual Finding Aids to see what we currently have in our collection.

The Finding Aids give a broad overview of the collection – typically at the container level (ie. box or folder).  They do not index every name which appears in the material.  Finding aids will not list all of the items in a container (ie. will not list every letter in a folder of letters).

If you would like to spend some time with the collection, please contact the Library to set up an appointment.
