Clyde Museum Archives

The Clyde Museum offers its collection, especially its local history files and paper archives collection for research to the general public. 

It is our hope that many individuals and/or entities will feel welcome to visit our museum and utilize its resources for research.

When visiting the museum to research its collections, there are certain criteria and guidelines to be followed. While we offer much of the collection for public research and study, not all resources are available for viewing due to their fragile nature and inherent vices of deterioration.

Some criteria/guidelines include showing valid legal identification, all items are viewed on site at the museum in the Hurd Room, no scanners or cameras, no ink pens, and etc.
