The Reach Gallery Museum continues to work on its Abbotsford Living History Project, a collection of photographs depicting life in Abbotsford from the 1880s to the present day. The project is accessible online and allows individuals to comment on photographs, adding personal memories and context to the collection and creating a meaningful connection with the community.

Today, more than 22,000 photographs are searchable online by a variety of categories. Many include information from the newspaper or from people who have been able to add their first-hand knowledge to the public record.
