The Quintilla Geer Bruton Archives Center, named for its founder, contains holdings of more than 4,000 books covering many genealogy related topics. The focus of this collection, however, is on the Plant City area, Hillsborough County, and Florida.

The Archives Center collection also includes microforms of such items as census records and old newspapers. Additionally, it includes family history and genealogy files as well as historic photographs and a large collection of CDs. The Center is located on the ground floor of the 1914 Plant City High School (PCHS) Community Center and is staffed entirely by volunteers.

The Archives Center sponsors classes and workshops periodically. They are open to the public and useful to family historians and genealogists at all levels of expertise. Classes and workshops are announced. . Additionally, you may get a schedule by e-mailing, visiting, or calling the Archives Center.

The Archives Center has two computers for patron use for genealogical research. The computers were provided from grant monies received from the Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, through the Department of State, Division of Library and Information Services. Patrons receive an Internet Genealogy Familiarization prior to using the Center's computers.
