COVID Update

Although Governor Whitmer has removed her “stay at home” order, because of the limited size of the Archives Room, the social distancing necessary and ability to disinfect materials, we will remain closed for an undetermined time.

The Archives is proceeding on its own plan for a safe re-opening.  Our primary concern in this possibly lengthy process is the safety of our volunteers and patrons.

The good news!  You can still access our digital resources by following the links  in the Digital Searches or Useful Links section.  We understand how important your research projects are during this unusual time.  Volunteers will continue to receive research requests and make every attempt to answer your Archives Inquiry form submissions.  Please have patience, we will be unable to respond to these requests immediately.

Archives Inquiries

To request specific information from the Howell Area Archives, please fill in and submit the Inquiry Form.
