In May 2005, the Arvada Historical Society, founded in 1972, moved into the historic McIlvoy House. We are excited that our collections of historic photographs, documents, books, and newspapers, among others, are now available to the public. Come visit us at 7307 Grandview Avenue - we'll put on the coffee pot and chat about Arvada, or perhaps look through the photos. Maybe you'll recognize a face or place. There's nothing better than a visit from a neighbor to make our day!
Our dedicated volunteers are organizing and cataloging the collections, and we plan to begin posting information from the archives here at our website.
We invite you to browse our website and learn more about the history of this community, Arvada, which we call home. Visit often, and remember to bookmark this site!
