Digital Photo Archive

We were presented with a grant through the Colorado Historic Research and Archives Board and the Buena Vista Heritage Preservation Commission through the town of Buena Vista. This project is an effort to make our photographic collections digital and able to be accessed for research by the public.

Digitization Update
We finally made giant steps forward with the digitization project. All the tapes have been digitized. Transcripts for them will be a long-term project that BVH will work on when time allows - each one can take up to 10 hours to process, and we have around 75 interviews. The final photo count is 3,345.

This marks the completion of the first two phases of the overall digitization project. While the project is not over yet, our current progress is the culmination of hundreds of hours of scanning, documenting, and processing, and we are thrilled to have concrete results to share. Once the season wraps up at the museum, we will start on the next portion - most likely in October.

Keep checking back, as we are still in the progress and more photos will be going live.
