HMCPL Special Collections is the community's archive.
We empower individuals to seek their past, explore Huntsville and Madison County,
and connect with history.
Search in Archival Collections: Special Collections has launched a portal to perform keyword searches in their 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.
Access the Archival Collections here!
Photographs: We are slowly uploading 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
