Museum Archive

The Museum’s archive is a collection of all of the paper based objects in the museum’s collection. The archive contains several valuable pieces with some dating as far back as 1836 to the present day.  Although the archive is not open to the public, researchers can request to view certain documents and artifacts upon request. Many of the objects are too fragile for exhibit and digitized copies will be available for the public on our website.
