Glendale Arizona Historical Society has an archive library focused on Glendale that is located in the Sahuaro Ranch Guest House.  Some of the items in the collection are photographs, school yearbooks, Glendale newspapers, city maps and directories, assorted subject news clippings, historic home information. We also have archived obituaries and wedding announcements dating back many years.


If you are researching a Glendale subject, we may be able to assist you. Please email our archive library volunteers at and include what you are looking for and as much detail as you can offer on the subject. We provide a free 30 minute consultation to inform you of the initial findings.  To view an archive item in person (Example: yearbooks), email the archive library to make an viewing appointment during regular business hours. If you wish to have our volunteers conduct a full archive search, the fee is $25 per hour. The hourly research fee is $10 per hour for GAHS members.
