Research Vermont Archival Records

Effective March 25, 2020, and in response to Governor Scott's "Stay at Home" order, the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration's Reference Room is closed to the public and all in-person services, including on-site inspection and copying of archival public records in the Vermont state archives, are suspended until June 15th. Born-digital archival records are available for research online through VT Re•tain, the State of Vermont's digital state archives.

The Vermont State Archives consists of state public records that have continuing value to the State of Vermont and its citizens. Vermont archival records document the rights of citizens, the decisions of government and the history of the State of Vermont. These critical public assets provide context for the actions of Vermont public agencies and for measuring the effectiveness of public policy over time.
