The Arvada Historical Society Marcetta Lutz Library & Archives serves as a central resource for those seeking to learn about the history of the city. We collect inactive, historically significant records from all aspects regarding the origin and growth of the city including biographical records, property histories and a variety of much more.

If you are responsible for creating or keeping related records, we’d like to work with you! Your contributions enable us to provide researchers with a rich, complex picture of the pedagogical and operational evolution of the city.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions—we’re more than happy to meet with you and review your records, and are pleased to help arrange for material to be transferred to the archives.


Do you have documents and other materials that shed light on aspects of New School history ?
