We want to hear from you. Share your experience with us. 

The Coronado Historical Association recognizes that today’s current events surrounding the new coronavirus have historic significance around the globe and in our own community. As the primary organization that documents Coronado's history, CHA is committed to collecting and archiving this moment.

The Coronado Historical Association is currently collecting materials that document the response of our community to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. 

As Coronado residents like you react to new policies and recommendations aimed to restrict the virus’ spread, we aim to document and preserve the materials and stories that demonstrate how you are continuing to communicate, work, commute, learn, teach, create, pray, celebrate, mourn, and give aid to others. Tell us your story or consider what objects or recordings best represent the experiences and observations that have stood out to you most. How are you and your family members adapting and spending your time? What do you regard as your biggest challenges? Do you have examples of how our community is coming together? Was there a moment when you realized a historic event was taking place?

The stories and materials we collect will allow all of us to study and share these experiences in the future. You can help us by donating physical materials or by using the form below to submit digital content.
