The National Archives at Fort Worth

The National Archives at Fort Worth

The National Archives at Fort Worth (formerly known as National Archives Southwest Region) is a center for historical and genealogical resources.

We have two facilities, one for Archival (John Burgess facility) and one for Microfilm research and Public Access Computers (Montgomery Plaza facility). Our historical records housed at our John Burgess facility date from the early 1800s to the late 1900s, and include letters, photographs, maps, architectural drawings, and other documents received from over 100 Federal agencies and courts in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.
