Thank you Tooele Rotary Club!

We have hundreds of pictures of local people and places. Some of them have yet to be identified. The Rotary Club members helped us put names to faces to make it easier to use the photos for research and exhibits.

We also have a local history reference collection at the museum where we store information we find on a variety of local history topics. The Rotary Club also helped us clip articles to add to our reference files.
