Tarrant County Archives
The Tarrant County Archives were established by the Commissioners Court in May 1976 at the request of Bennett Smith, then chairman of the Tarrant County Historical Commission. The Tarrant County Archives is located in the Tarrant County Plaza Building, 200 Taylor Street in downtown Fort Worth on the 5th floor.
The purpose of the Archives is not only to preserve the heritage of the county, but also to serve as a research center for Tarrant County history. The Archives is open to the public for research of local history and is extensively used by all facets of the community.
