About

State Archives

Since 1855 the Connecticut State Library has acquired historical records from the three branches of State government. In 1909, the General Assembly made the State Library the official State Archives. The Archives contains more than 42,000 cubic feet of records documenting the evolution of state public policy and its implementation, the rights and claims of citizens, and the history of Connecticut and it's people. For a chronological history see: Time-Line of Important Dates in the History of Connecticut's Public Records and State Archives Programs (PDF).

 

Reference services and access to archival records are available through History & Genealogy.
