Missouri State Archives

The Missouri Archives research room is closed to in-person researchers until May 1, 2020. Staff will continue to answer remote research requests submitted through our online request form or emailed to archref@sos.mo.gov.

In an effort to continue to make our records available to researchers, all researchers can temporarily submit up to three requests at a time.

The Missouri State Archives is the official repository for state records of permanent and historical value. Its mission is to foster an appreciation of Missouri history and illuminate contemporary public issues by preserving and making available the state's permanent records to its citizens and their government.
