The Archives of Ohio United Methodism is the official repository for materials generated or owned by the East and West Ohio Conferences of The United Methodist Church and their antecedents, their organizations, districts, churches, and individuals associated with the Conferences. It is jointly sponsored and supported by the two Conferences, which merged their collections at Ohio Wesleyan University in 2003.
The Archives is located in the Special Collections department of Beeghly Library, on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. Hours are 8:30-12 Noon and 1-5 PM, Monday-Friday. During the summer months, we open at 9 AM instead of 8:30 AM.
The collection contains:
