Due to COVID-19 Flu The McKinley Presidential Library & Museum is Temporarily Shut Down until further notice.
During this time we will not be accepting any new Research Requests until further notice. Thank you for your patience. We wish you and your family well, and will return to serve you when this threat has passed.
We Seek the Threads that Connect the Past & Present to Inspire Others in Their Quests..
This is WHY we do what we do…
This is our cause, our belief, our mission
People travel great distances, make great sacrifices, and spend vast amounts of time and money searching for the answers to their questions. People from all over the world visit, call, or write to the Archive with questions about their relatives who lived in Stark County, to find a business that was once here, or to view the vast photograph collection. Everyone has a story, everyone has a question. We can help you…
Welcome to the McKinley Presidential Library & Stark County Archives, located in the South Wing of the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum in Canton, Ohio
