We also need help gathering historic records and objects related to local history.
Do you have old documents, photos - - -

We are actively collecting historic objects and both physical and digital documents for a centralized Johns Creek history archives and museum. If you have historic objects, photos, documents, books, tapes, or stories related to the Johns Creek area during earlier times, please contact us at info@johnscreekhistory.org

We are accepting donations of records, but can also make digital copies, if you want to retain your originals.
