Scheduling a Research Visit

Until the Archives is fully staffed, we are closed to visitors. When we reopen, our hours will be Monday-Friday (excepting holidays), 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. for all visitors with appointments required for research.

Research Visit Requirements

The Moravian Archives requires the following requirements when wanting to visit in person:

  • Researchers must call or email to make an appointment.
  • Walk-in researchers will not be admitted.
  • There will be a limit of 3 persons in the research room at a time (including MMF researchers).

Please call or email to schedule an appointment.


Parking is in the northwest corner of the lot at the western end of SR 4326 (Rams Drive) off Salem Avenue. The same street serves as entry to the Elbertson Fine Arts Center at Salem College. From the east side/parking lot, come to our front entrance by walking up the stairs on the south side of our building in front of you.

There may also be on-street parking spots available near the intersection of Church Street and Bank Street, just to the west of the Archie K. Davis Center. Access our front door from the west by walking under the south portico at Cedarhyrst, the gray stone mansion that serves as the offices for the Moravian Church, Southern Province, at 459 S. Church Street. Yes, they actually are on Church Street – we are back off of it, but “Church Street” is still our street address. Our front entrance is directly to the east, just behind Cedarhyrst.


If you need accessibility assistance when visiting our facility, you may enter through the gated door on the lower level of our building on the east side, facing the parking lot. During events, that door should be attended. Otherwise, please ring the bell for assistance.
