    About the Archives

    Established by the Board of County Commissioners in 1991, Jefferson County Archives serves as the institutional memory of Jefferson County government. It is the official repository for all permanent records of historical or evidential value created or received by the county in the course of its business activities, with records dating from 1859.

    The Archives collects, preserves, arranges, and describes these permanently valuable records and makes them available to genealogists, historians, students and other individuals, governments, and businesses who are interested in the history and development of Jefferson County and its governing body.
