Currently, the library is only available by appointment. If you are interested in visiting the library, please contact the Fort Custer Historical Society via their website. If one of the above is your ancestor, leave a comment and I can let you know what is included in their manuscript papers.

I plan to use my blog to let others know what is available at the library. Check back on the first Friday of every month for more information. I will be sharing manuscript information, unique resources, vertical file topics, postcards, photographs, and more.
