The Archives Center is located on the ground floor of the 1914 Plant City High School. There is ample free parking in short walking distance to downtown Plant City. The Archive Center is about 25 driving miles distance from the old Courthouse in Dade City or 16 miles from the Zephyrhills City Hall.

The Archives Center contains holdings of several thousand books, family, historical, genealogical and photographic files, periodicals, newspapers, census, and records on microfilm and a large CD database.

To highlight part of the collection:
There is a large collection of texts on Florida history and genealogy, but there are also collections on the other states and many foreign countries. There is a large collection of family histories. In addition, there is a large collection of journals and periodicals from genealogical and historical societies all over the country. The census microfilms are mostly of Alabama, Florida and Georgia. On microfiche there is the Florida Death Index and old issues of the Plant City Courier.

The Archives are not indexed on a computer.
