Archival Adventures in Small Repositories
The Media Historic Archives Commission, a unit of the Borough of Media, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, was established in 1981 to act as custodian for archival materials relating to the Borough and its vicinity. The Commission holds over 100 linear feet of archival materials, including photographs, slides, movie film, newspaper articles, audio tapes, historic notes, and memorabilia. The Commission also owns some artifacts and archeological findings. The oldest documents date from the 1680s, although most materials date from the mid 19th century to the present.
