One of the Arvada Historical Society’s missions is to connect people with information, ideas and experiences to provide enjoyment, enrich lives and strengthen our community.

The Arvada Artifacts project was developed to engage the community to share and connect with their history in new ways using technology, partnerships and outreach programming. It is important now more than ever to capture the stories and images that have shaped our Western heritage and safeguard our history for future generations.

As a showcase of community generated materials, Arvada Artifacts provides an exciting new venue for content. With audience participation and contributions, relinquishing top down control will democratize the content the users and the community contribute. Rather than the partners being the main content providers, the community at large will be the content experts.
