El Paso Strong Archival Initiative

The El Paso County Historical Society remembers and grieves for the victims of the horrific attack that took place in El Paso on August 3, 2019. El Paso was targeted that day, but we emerged stronger than ever before.

We continue to gather images, oral histories, social media posts, artwork, and other physical and digital items from the public that will help us preserve the memories of those who perished and El Paso’s response to this tragedy. To learn more about the El Paso Strong Archival Initiative, please email us at epchs@elpasohistory.com or message us through our Facebook page. #ElPasoStrong
