This 1890s building once served as offices for the Crown Cotton Mill but now serves as headquarters for the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society. The facility is used for many functions—meetings, seminars, family reunions, social affairs and fundraising events. The building also serves as a repository of valuable information for those interested in genealogical and local historical research. One can find cemetery lists, marriage indexes, census indexes, county and family histories, and more than 700 family files—all available to the public. The Archives also houses revolving displays of local historical interests.

Wonder Women of Whitfield
Please join us in honoring the memories of a multitude of women who were fundamental in the history of the Whitfield County area. This event serves to pay tribute to the legacy and continuing influence of these women. From stories of the creation of the first public library by the Dalton Women's Club to the philanthropic work of legendary women, including Gertrude "Tut" McFarland & Lenna Judd, to the creation of the School For Health Occupations headed by Grace Ward, these women have a continuing influence throughout our community. This event will warm your heart and your soul!
