What is the Romeo Community Archives all about?

The purpose of the Romeo Community Archives is to collect and preserve materials that record the history of Romeo, Washington, and Bruce. The collections we have include documents, photographs, and other donated materials from local organizations, businesses, and families. 

The collections can be accessed by the public, researchers, genealogists, and anyone interested in the history of Romeo. Find out more information about us by visiting the tab links above. 

Here is a video view of the Archives:

Keep It Cool With History at the Archives

Stop in for a tour of the Romeo Community Archives this summer to beat the heat and stay cool. Our temperature controlled room is kept at an even 63 chilly degrees to help preserve the materials in our collections.

Click the Research link to learn more about our collections which document the history of Romeo, Washington Township, and Bruce Township. Our largest collection is the Joan D. and Melvin E. Bleich collection which features over 140 years of The Romeo Observer newspaper.
