Wolverhampton City Archives houses a wealth of materials relating to the history of the city including maps, books, census returns, newspapers, records from local schools, churches, clubs, societies and businesses, electoral registers, and indexes to births, deaths and marriages. There are also over 30,000 photographs, plus films, sound recordings, memorabilia and much more.
A city landmark, this Grade II* listed building was built in the mid-18th century as a home for the wealthy Molineux family, before becoming a hotel in the 1870s. Having fallen into disrepair after closing in 1979, the building has since been fully restored, with the impressive wood-panelled Oak Room and ornate Rococo Room giving a glimpse into the former life of the building.
The nearest station to the archives is Wolverhampton. It is a 13-minute walk on foot. Cross over Railway Drive, turn right past the Chubb Building and follow the ring road north. The City Archives are located in front of the Molineux Football Stadium.
