Digging Deeper is Historic Seattle’s multi-session program designed to provide attendees with behind-the-scenes insight to primary research materials in the many archives and libraries in Seattle and King County. Each month we visit a selected archive or library and receive expert advice as to what is available and how staff can assist with research projects. This program helps you to explore buildings, architecture, and history. By the time you are through, you will want to attend one or more of the events during National Archives Month in Seattle in October 2015.
On September 3, we visit the archives and historic chapel of Providence Mount St. Vincent in West Seattle. Providence Archives collects, organizes, preserves, and makes available records of enduring and historical value relating to the Sisters of Providence religious community in the west, and Providence Health & Services. Institutional and corporate records, manuscripts, photographs, audiovisual materials, and artifacts document ministries in education, health care, and social services. Collections date from 1856 to the present and encompass Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, California, as well as El Salvador.
The Archives is located in West Seattle at St. Joseph Residence, a building in the Providence Mount St. Vincent complex.
