Presbyterian Historical Society Storing Records of Permanent Value


As the national archives of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Presbyterian Historical Society (PHS) collects records of historic value from congregations, mid councils, national agencies, individuals, and families. PHS supports the record-keeping activities of all entities of the Church. PHS digitizes records; stores records of permanent value; and provides advice on records retention, storage, and preservation. It also holds original records of permanent value in an environmentally controlled archival storage area with specialized fire detection and security systems. Congregations can deposit records at no charge.

Congregations retain ownership of the records and may request their return at any time with written authorization from the clerk of session. For more information visit
