What is an archive?

An archive is a repository that houses historical documents, records, photos, and/or film that provides information about a place, a person, an institution, event, and so on. These original primary sources are used for scholarly, personal,  and/or genealogical research.

St. Louis County Historical Society Records

The majority of the St. Louis County Historical Society's archival materials are located at the Kathryn A. Martin Library Archives and Special Collections.

Veterans of St. Louis County

The Albert J. Amatuzio Archive and Research Center houses a very small amount of donated archival material that focuses on the veterans of St. Louis County. For more information, check out our Veterans Memorial Hall program.

In addition to donated archival material, the VMH Program has a small oral history collection that is still in process.
