HMCPL Special Collections

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

HMCPL’s digital archives contains digital copies of our photographs and historical documents. The digital archive allow patrons to take history with them wherever they go and to access archives materials outside of library hours. Local community partners who have shared materials with us for the public are also featured on the site.
