Archive & Collections

The archives at Long Branch provide an insight into the history of the home and the surrounding area. The documents located in the archives provide details about the home and the families that are associated with the building. The items located in Long Branch’s archive and collections range from the earliest days of the home through the recent past. The archives are open to the public and can be viewed and researched in the Archive Room located on the second floor of the home.

The Finding Aid for the archive and collections can be found here: LONG BRANCH FINDING AID
