The Western Regional Archives is the newest branch of the State Archives of North Carolina. Located in Asheville, NC in a former Veterans Administration nurses dormitory, the WRA collects, preserves, and promotes regional history.
The WRA opened on August 10, 2012 and has been gaining momentum. New collections are added frequently, outreach is up, patron use is up, and the collaborations with institutions and agencies across the region is unprecedented.
