620 W. Bleeker St. (Behind the Wheeler/Stallard Museum)
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 to accommodate the archives.
The Carriage House holds over 30,000 archival images and papers as well as a good portion of the 6000-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, birth certificates and historic land uses. In addition, thousands of our images can be searched online at archiveaspen.org.
