  • Overview

    The Center for the Evangelical United Brethren Heritage is an educational resource center serving United Theological Seminary, the United Methodist Church, and other groups and individuals seeking information about the history, beliefs, practices, people, congregations, and denominational programs of the EUB Church and its predecessor denominations—the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Evangelical Association, United Evangelical Church, and Evangelical Church.

    The Center collects, preserves, maintains, exhibits, and provides public access to a significant collection of historical publications, manuscripts, images, and artifacts. It does not manage the legal and business records of churches, districts, and conferences. These must be accessed at other United Methodist-related institutions.

    The United Archives and Center for the Evangelical United Brethren Heritage staff will assist you with finding and using relevant resources. Because our staff is small, we request that you call ahead to make an appointment: 937.529.2201 x: 3402.  In preparation for your visit, you may wish to:

    • Search the United library catalog for the titles and call numbers of books and periodicals that you would like to use

       library catalog

    • Review the Vertical File Index to see if we have a folder of data on a particular church or person of interest to you

      vertical file

    • Review the List of Historical Collections below to identify manuscript, artifact, and image collections that might be useful in your research. If a Finding Aid exists for the collections in question, please activate the link and view the document. Finding Aids describe the history, contents, and organization of collections.
