The First Church Archives contains records, photographs, books and other memorabilia documenting the church’s history from its beginnings in the early 18th century.


Researchers may request an appointment to use archival records by contacting the library ( or (860) 232-3893).

A selection of historical documents from the archives related to First Church and the Town of West Hartford have been digitized and are available through the digital collection: Treasures of Connecticut

Located beneath the First Church Meeting House, the JPWL is the go-to place for books and media related to sermons, Sunday School, social justice issues, and so much more!
