HMCPL Special Collections: Digital Archive

HMCPL Special Collections is the community's archive. We empower individuals to seek their past, explore Huntsville and Madison County, and connect with history.

Digital Archive

Special Collections has launched a portal to perform keyword searches in our archival collections. This is exclusive to the original records in the archive (for rare books and genealogy/local history books, you can still search on the library's website). We are continuing to work on this portal, and we are constantly adding new information to it. We appreciate any feedback on the platform (especially if something isn't working the way it should!).

Photographs: We are slowly adding photographs to this platform, as well. We appreciate your patience while we finish this aspect of the platform. In the meantime, anyone wishing to do photographic research can contact our archivist Cait Monroe (
