A lot of ongoing work is being done to provide archival and historical information online for educational purposes.

This archival or historical information may include data on people, places, events, services and/or businesses that still exist today, however, the City does not endorse said data, or that which the data represents, by its inclusion.

The City by means of donations has accumulated a large amount of data in its Heritage Collection and has included some of that data on the Site.
