Hanover College is home to the largest collection of Presbyterian Church records in the state of Indiana. The Presbyterian Archives includes records of local churches from across the state, as well as Presbytery and Synod of Indiana Records. Researchers will find church session minutes, ministers’ journals, photographs, financial records, and church registers dating from 1800-2015. These records often contain vital records information (birth, marriage, baptismal, and death) not documented in official state records.
The included finding aids provide researchers with valuable information about the materials housed in the Archives and Special Collections. These can include a general description of the materials, biographical or historical information, and a contents list.
