The Archives Department is Moving! 

We will be closed for all genealogical and scholarly research during our move beginning Thursday, August 9, 2018.  We anticipate the move will take several weeks.  For all other requests we will respond as soon as we are able.  Thank you for your patience, we can’t wait to assist you in our new space at 1919 Parker Street!
