College Archives & the Grove City Historical Society

Grove City College has a very rich history, and the main goal of the archives is to preserve the College’s 138 years in one central and safe location. When Carnegie Alumni Center was renovated in 2009, an archive room was built to house the College’s historical documents, artifacts and memorabilia. In January of 2012, Hilary (Lewis '09) Walczak, College Archivist, began working to organize, catalogue and preserve the College’s historical items. As the archive grows, so does the College’s history. The archive team is in the process of preserving, cataloging and digitizing the collections for the present day use and for the future. The College Archives is the best resource for college history.
