Welcome to the Treasures, an online exhibit of some of the most priceless items from the collections at the North Carolina State Archives, with supplemental materials from the State Library of North Carolina to be added later. These archival documents are not available for public viewing except at specifically designated times due to their importance to the state’s history and, in some cases, their fragile condition. Also included in this online collection are some examples of presidential signatures that the State Archives has collected over time.
The Treasures began years ago as a temporary exhibit in the State Archives Search Room and, by moving this exhibit online, we hope to increase access to these materials. We hope to expand the Treasures exhibit as time allows, so check back here or browse our blog for news about new items.
