The CCHS archives are housed in the cottage located south of the Monon Depot Museum. The collections include hundreds of vertical files about Carmel history and residents, oral histories, textiles, maps, photographs, and manuscripts.

Patrons should use pencils only.
The archive collections are open to the public, but collections do not circulate.
Patrons can bring laptop computers into the archives.
Food and Beverages are not allowed near the collections.
