     Missouri Digital Heritage is a collaborative effort that dramatically expands the amount of information available online about Missouri’s past. In 2007, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan proposed this landmark initiative to further Missourians’ access to information about the history of our state and local communities.

     Through Missouri Digital Heritage, the Missouri State Archives and the Missouri State Library are assisting institutions across the state in digitizing their records and placing them online for easy access. We invite you to enter our website and to join with us in celebrating our collective past.

The State Historical Society of Missouri Digital Collections provide online access to photographs, art, maps, diaries, letters, newspapers, books, articles, and oral histories telling the story of Missouri’s history, people, and culture.

Please note that historical materials are products of their time, and some of these materials may contain offensive language or negative stereotypes. The State Historical Society of Missouri does not endorse any views expressed in these collections.
