The National Archives at Philadelphia maintains the historically significant records of the Federal Agencies and Courts, in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, dating from 1789 to the present. These historical records are open to the public.
Come visit us at Townsend Road to use our brand new Public PC and Reference Room, ready for your research needs.
Researchers wishing to use original records (that is, paper and photographs that have not been digitized or are not available online) are still strongly encouraged to make an appointment at this time.
Please call 215-305-2044 or email us at Philadelphia.firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a Research Room appointment, as space is limited.
