The Presbyterian Historical Society is the national archives of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its primary historical research center. Our mission is to collect, preserve, and share the story of the American Presbyterian experience with Presbyterians, the scholarly community, and the general public.

As the memory of the Reformed tradition, the Society uses the lessons of the Church's heritage to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a records management program at the denomination's headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, it serves the church's national agencies, middle governing bodies, and local congregations as well as scholars and the general public.
