Resources

 

By its nature, ARCH is one of the area’s foremost resources for Fort Wayne, Allen County, and northeast Indiana history. Along with access to an extensive library of archives and historical records, we have a number of publications, maps and audio CDs available for purchase — ideal as gifts for others or yourself!

Publications:

ARCH proactively records the built history of northeast Indiana through independent requests and in partnership with the State of Indiana. To date, we have produced Interim Survey Reports for Adams, Allen, LaGrange, Steuben and Wells counties; completed the nominations of thousands of structures to the National Register of Historic Places; and published studies on Indiana’s Old Order Amish and historic suburban developments, among a growing list of authored and published works.

National Register & Local Historic designations

For a nominal fee, ARCH staff will research and write applications for National Register and local historic designations. We gladly assist property owners, civic leaders, and neighborhoods with research queries using our research library. For a more complete listing of National Register-listed properties in Indiana, the State of Indiana maintains a database.
