Searching the Archives

BooksYe Olde Sulphur Spa Historical Society is home to a small archive of local history documents and artifacts.The Archives is open for researchers each Wednesday from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. 

Our holdings include items from York Springs borough and Huntington, Latimore, and Tyrone Townships. Portions of our collection are not open to the public. Requests for information from these collections and requests from out-of-town researchers must be handled by our staff. Staff members are available to work with requests on a limited basis.

Requests can be made by filling out our Research Request Form and submitting it with the initial research request fee of $15.00 to YOSSHS.

Our researchers will evaluate your request and contact you with their findings. Once the evaluation has been made, additional research can be arranged for an hourly fee if warranted. The hourly rate for research is $25. Photocopies or scans of documents are available for a fee on a case-by-case basis, depending on the condition of the materials.

Local history records may also be found at the Adams County Historical Society in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
