Archives closed Dec. 26 through Jan. 2.
Our renovation of the archives has started! As we remodel the building – increasing our public meeting space, expanding our storage capability and safeguarding the collection – please be advised that it’s necessary to make an appointment if you are interested in researching with our archives department. Availability may be limited, but we’ll do our best to meet your requests. This spring, we’ll have a brand new facility with enhanced research resources. To learn more about the campaign, visit here.

620 W. Bleeker St. (Behind the Wheeler/Stallard Museum)
Located on the grounds of Ruth Whyte Park, adjacent to the Wheeler/Stallard Museum, the Carriage House 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.
