The Arizona State Archives has a new home. The archives moved recently out of cramped space at the state Capitol into spacious, modern digs in the $29 million Polly Rosenbaum Archives and History Building at 19th Avenue and Madison Street in Phoenix.
The building, named after the longest-serving member of the Arizona Legislature, will be formally dedicated Jan. 15.
"The new building has 50 times more room than the old building and we are all very happy with the move," said Melanie Sturgeon, history and archives division director for the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records.
The building houses a large collection of genealogy information, which brings many people to research their family history and ancestry.
