Library & Archives Research Center Mission Statement


The primary function of the Sharlot Hall Museum Library & Archives Research Center is to provide support to amateur, professional and academic researchers and members of the general public who are interested in our resources.  We fulfill this directive by supplying access to our various collection materials.  The Library & Archives is a full-service research facility where we collect and preserve archaeological, cultural and historical materials related to Prescott, the surrounding communities, Yavapai County and Central Arizona.   In addition, due to our namesake Sharlot M. Hall, this Research Center also collects materials regarding pioneering, territorial and modern-day Arizona women and their families who settled and lived in Yavapai County and Arizona Central Highlands area.

 

General Collection Information


The collections consist of rare books, manuscripts, diaries, personal correspondence, organizational papers, maps, photographs, oral histories, archaeological reports, some local and state governmental records, and genealogical materials that vary in an array of topics.  Subjects range from prehistoric Native cultures and early pioneer settlements to modern mining, ranching and business history of the Arizona Central Highlands area.
