Marina Historical Committee



The Marina Foundation Historical Committee’s mission is to collect, catalog, and archive historical documents, photographs, and memorabilia pertinent to the preservation of the history of the City of Marina for current and future generations.

The Committee is also interested in collecting oral histories, tapes, and video recorded memories from residents and others who are interested in sharing their Marina stories.


Establishing a professional archive will allow the production of public programs and exhibits, enabling cooperation with schools, community groups and businesses to educate the public, and to promote interest in the history of Marina.


If you would like to help preserve the City of Marina’s history and like doing research, this is the committee for you. The committee meets once a month on the second Monday at 5:00 PM at the Veterans Transition Center, 220 12th Street, in Marina.


If you would like to take part in an Oral Interview, the Committee is in the process of recording those who have a knowledge of the history of Marina or a story to tell that might be of interest now and/or for future generations. The questions for the interview are available to download here.
