The National Archives at Fort Worth

The National Archives at Fort Worth is a center for historical and genealogical resources.

Please Note: On September 25, 2015, the National Archives at Fort Worth's research and training rooms at 2600 West 7th Street, Fort Worth, TX 76107 (Montgomery Plaza) closed, and relocated to 1400 John Burgess Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76140.

Our new microfilm research room at our John Burgess location (1400 John Burgess Drive, Fort Worth, 76140) opened on on October 1, 2015.

This move allows us to consolidate our staff and resources that will result in even greater customer service.

We hope to see you!
