MARINA DEL REY HISTORICAL SOCIETY



Donate your Marina del Rey area photos, documents, and history

The Marina del Rey Historical Society (MdRHS) was founded to collect and preserve historical documents, artifacts, publications, photographs, data and information relating to the development of Marina del Rey as exhibits and in retrievable electronic databases in order to keep the past alive for community pride and to create a unique resource of cultural and educational materials of historic value. Since our collection is electronically filed, personal contributions (photographs, printed material, documents, etc.) can be scanned to our files and the originals returned to the donor. Credit for the contribution will be listed and included in the captions.


Special fundraising for archival equipment and materials

The Society has started a fund raising campaign for equipment and materials to archive and preserve this artifact collection. If you have lived, sailed, raced, or biked in Marina del Rey… THIS IS YOUR HISTORY TOO! Please consider any donation amount so that the Society can move forward with building a researchable digital collection of our materials while preserving the originals for future generations.
