Guide to Historical Collections

The Center for the Evangelical United Brethren Heritage is an educational resource center serving United Theological Seminary, the United Methodist Church, and other groups and individuals seeking information about the history, beliefs, practices, people, congregations, and denominational programs of the EUB Church and its predecessor denominations—the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Evangelical Association, United Evangelical Church, and Evangelical Church.

The Center collects, preserves, maintains, exhibits, and provides public access to a significant collection of historical publications, manuscripts, images, and artifacts. It does not manage the legal and business records of churches, districts, and conferences. These must be accessed at other United Methodist-related institutions.

The United Archives and Center for the Evangelical United Brethren Heritage staff will assist you with finding and using relevant resources. Because our staff is small, we request that you call ahead to make an appointment: 937.529.2233, email the Center at eubheritage@united.edu, or visit the Center’s Contact Us/Research link. In preparation for your visit, you may wish to look at the information and links on the EUB Resources page, the EUB Collections page, and the list of Historical Collections and Finding Aids below.
