The University of Louisville's Archives and Special Collections has many collections that document Louisville before 1877. This guide highlights these materials, and provides a starting place for research.
These collections can be used in the Archives and Special Collections research room (Ekstrom Library lower level room 17) anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. You do not need to make an appointment. See Planning Your Visit for more information.
