Special Collections

WHS Special Collections are miscellaneous paper or book materials that are grouped by subject matter. Some of the most significant include the following:

Biographical Collection

This includes files by a person’s or family’s name (example: Hart family), clippings of obituaries, and articles published about the person or family.

Landmark and Building Collection

Street address, districts, neighborhoods or subdivisions, and architecture and preservation history are some of the details that provide information on the sites that are on file.

School Collection

The files are by school name and contain varied materials, such as PTA records, photographs and receipts. These are not official school records.


These collections are not digitized at this time. Please visit the historical society to view this material.
