Located on the grounds of Ruth Whyte Park, adjacent to the Wheeler/Stallard Museum, the Archive Building is home to the Society’s archives and a good portion of the collection. The replica house was built in 1977 and in 2017, AHS completed a $1 million renovation of the Archive Building. Thanks to the collective generosity of many, the Archive Building now features community space for exhibitions, educational programming, and events; a 35% increase in our collection storage capacity; a state-of-the-art climate control system and advanced hazard-protection system to safeguard our collection; and additional space for offices.
The Archive Building holds over 30,000 archival images and papers as well as a good portion of the 6,000-plus artifacts that have been accessioned by the Society for the benefit of the community.
Members of the community are invited to make appointments to use the archives for research, for anything from genealogy to birth certificates to historic land use records. In addition, thousands of our images can be searched and purchased online at archiveaspen.org.
