Santa Ana History Room....Where the past is present

Within the Santa Ana Public Library is a very special facility -- the Santa Ana History Room -- with collections of Santa Ana, Orange County, and California history.

The past is present in the form of books, maps, photographs, oral histories, clippings, scrapbooks, slides, etc. Santa Ana and Orange County crisscross directories and Orange County telephone directories are sources of information on early residents and buildings.

A biography index to Santa Ana and Orange County names, a Santa Ana building and business index, and a non-book material index are available. California and local magzines dating from the later 1800s are shelved in the Santa Ana History Room.

The Library has early Santa Ana newspapers on microfilm in its Periodical section. Bound copies of newspapers are located in the Santa Ana History Room.

The Santa Ana History Room is located in the Santa Ana Public Library, main facility, 26 Civic Center Plaza, Santa Ana, CA 92701 (on Civic Center Drive, a few blocks west of Main St.). Their phone number is (714) 647-5267. For their current hours, check their link below.
