City Historic Archives
Our mandate is to collect, catalogue and maintain paper, documents and photographs related to the City of North Battleford.
In 1988, the City’s 75th Anniversary Committee decided to donate $500 to start the City of North Battleford Historic Archives with the goal of maintaining and preserving the rich cultural heritage of North Battleford. Today, a volunteer organization works in partnership with the City of North Battleford towards that goal. The City Archives is a donation based repository and is made possible due to the generosity of the citizens of North Battleford, who wish to see the history of our great City preserved.
The City Collection has over 7000 photographs, 5000 negatives and over 200 metres of textual records. The subjects covered within this material are very extensive and range in dates from the early 1800’s to the present. All items donated to the Archives are kept in a climate controlled, an acid-free environment that is up to the standards set out by the SCAA (Saskatchewan Council of Archives and Archivists).
