The archives of Baker County Library contain around 10,000 items including historic photographs and photo negatives. This online resource contains about 80% of those records as digitized images.

This archive is dedicated to the memory of Pearl Hayden Jones, Grace Lewis, Dorothy York, & Laura Hayse, four dedicated volunteers who worked on this photo collection for many years. It is maintained by Gary Dielman, local author, historian, and volunteer curator/archivist of the Baker County Library's historic photo collection for over thirty years. Many thanks to Gary & all our wonderful volunteers!

How to help: 

If you have historic photos of Baker County, please consider helping to preserve and share the rich history of our region by contacting us to arrange a loan or gift of the items for inclusion in the county library archive.  Monetary contributions help provide archival supplies and are also gratefully received.  Volunteers may also be needed to help index or digitize items for the archive. 

Thank you for your support!
