The National Archives at Philadelphia maintains the historically significant records of the Federal Agencies and Courts, in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, dating from 1789 to the present. These historical records, as well as select federal bankruptcy records, are open to the public.
Please note: Renovations to the Market Street facility were set back by the 16-day Federal Government shutdown. At the moment, it looks like we'll reopen in early December. Check back for updates. We look forward to welcoming researchers and hosting workshops and other events as soon as possible.
We are currently closed to all researchers and visitors due to our renovations. When we reopen in December, our hours will be:
Monday through Friday, 8:30 A.M. to 4:45 P.M.
Second Saturday of each month, 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
Closed Sundays and Federal holidays.
