Santa Maria Memories Scanning Sessions

We are thrilled to give our readers the opportunity to submit historic photos for our upcoming Santa Maria Valley Memories book project. If you have photographs that meet the guidelines below, please bring them to one of our scanning sessions listed here.

Photos will be scanned on-site and given right back to you.


Submission Guidelines

  • Photos taken in the Santa Maria Valley.
  • Photos taken during the 1800s-1939.
  • Photos only – preferably original photos (no newspaper clippings or photocopies).
  • One submission form per photo.
  • Limit 10 photos per family. Call 360-723-5802 to set up an appointment if you’re a private collector with a sizable collection.
