Collin County Images is the online archive for photos, documents, yearbooks and other materials representing the people and places of Collin County. This online archive began with 165 images from the Wells Collection 15 years ago, and the library has been adding to the collection ever since. You can browse different timelines and collections, just click “Browse” at the top of the page.
The Genealogy Center team also contributes to the blog, showcasing different topics through the archives. Check out past blog posts here.
