Area Research Center
The Area Research Center (ARC) Network
The Area Research Center, a cooperative venture between the University and the Wisconsin Historical Society, is one of fourteen centers located throughout the state which contain local government records and manuscripts for designated groups of counties. Each ARC may borrow materials from the others for the use of its patrons. Materials may be identified by searching the holdings of the Wisconsin Historical Society’s Archives. UW-Whitewater is responsible for the materials of Rock, Jefferson, and Walworth Counties.
Are you researching your family in our counties? These manuscripts, books, and public records will help.
Are you researching a topic for a paper or presentation that requires the use of original source materials? We can provide items of local interest and help identify other state and national resources.
Are you researching the history of your home or the ownership of property in our counties? These records may be of help.
