Local History

It is recommended that patrons who wish to view Local History files book an appointment with a librarian. Or, email:

MPL’s Local History Room has a collection of archived materials related to Montclair, including Biography Files and Subject Files. We also have  The Montclair Times on microfilm dating back to 1877, city directories and high school yearbooks. Digitally, we offer more than 13,000 images on Montclair History Online, and a selection of NICHE videos available for viewing on YouTube.

Many homeowners in town also like to research their house. The Local History Room has tax records and deed abstracts, which are available for viewing by appointment. For more specific information about researching a building in Montclair (House, church, business, or any kind of building), click here.
