The National Archives at Fort Worth

The National Archives at Fort Worth

The National Archives at Fort Worth (formerly known as National Archives Southwest Region) is a center for historical and genealogical resources.

Please Note: Saturday hours at the Montgomery Plaza facility of the National Archives at Fort Worth (2600 West 7th Street, Fort Worth, TX, 76107) will stop as of February 2015. This is in part due to low attendance, and in part to allow staff to focus on closing this office in February 2016 and consolidating operations at 1400 John Burgess, Fort Worth, TX, 76140.

We will continue to be open during our regular hours of operation: Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. If you have any questions, please call 817-831-5620.

We have two facilities, one for Archival (John Burgess facility) and one for Microfilm research and Public Access Computers (Montgomery Plaza facility). Our historical records housed at our John Burgess facility date from the early 1800s to the late 1900s, and include letters, photographs, maps, architectural drawings, and other documents received from over 100 Federal agencies and courts in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.
