About the Office
The archive service in Halifax was established in 1964, building on foundations laid by the Halifax Museums Service, local public libraries and the Halifax Antiquarian Society. It moved to its present purpose-built accommodation in the Halifax town centre in January 1983. Calderdale joined the West Yorkshire Archive Service in April 1983.
