The Vermont State Archives consists of records that have continuing value to the State of Vermont and its citizens. Commonly referred to as archival, records in the Vermont State Archives document Vermont state government from its creation in 1777 to the present.
The public is welcome to conduct research at the Vermont State Archives. Our record series database provides an index to records in the archives. Questions and inquiries may be directed to our Reference Room staff. Please note that records accessed through VSARA’s Reference Room do not circulate.
VSARA cannot provide access to any records stored in the State Records Center with the exception of Vermont vital records and any records for which specific authorization has been granted by an agency's records officer or liaison. Public records requests and inquiries related to records stored in the Records Center, including requests for specific access, must be submitted directly to State agencies and departments. A list of State agencies and departments is available online at: http://www.vermont.gov/portal/government/
