The Acadian Archives documents, preserves, and celebrates the culture, way of life, and history of the Franco-American and Acadian people of the Upper St John River Valley. We serve the University community, individuals, and organizations as a repository for manuscript materials and audio-visual documentation relevant to regional folklore, folklife, and history. In addition, we offer on-site reference assistance for our archival collections, regional history, genealogy, folklore and folklife, outreach presentations, and workshops.

Notice Regarding Operating Hours:

The Archives may be closed for observed holidays or special activities. Please call or check our calendar for more information. Researchers are encouraged to make appointments to ensure the best possible assistance during their visits.
