The Orange County Archives serves as the main repository for historic property documents, vital records and other materials from county government. The Archives is open daily to offer assistance to local historians, property researchers, genealogists and students.
The Archives also is home to a vast collection of historic photos and archival material from affiliated government agencies, as well as the Knott’s Berry Farm Collection, the Orange County Newschannel Collection, the federal court record of the county’s 1994 bankruptcy and the records of the El Toro Reuse Planning Authority.
We strive to make it easy to access Orange County's historical records and photographs. The records we maintain and safeguard belong to the citizens of Orange County.
Thank you for visiting the Orange County Archives.
