The Archives

Housed in a 5,000 sq. ft. vault in the basement of the Washington County Municipal Center the Archives is the repository for many of the County's oldest and most fragile document. For that reason it is an environmentally controlled facility where temperature and humidity are constantly monitored. In addition, the documents are stored in acid-free containers and many are microfilmed to insure their preservation. 

An area has been set aside within the Archives where public is welcomes and encouraged to conduct their family or historical research. A collection of newsletters, pamphlets, indices, books and other research aids is available to help in your effort.
