William P. Sherman Library and Archives

The Sherman Library includes more than 3,000 rare and modern books and periodicals. The library focuses on subjects relevant to the Corps of Discovery Expedition, the history of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, biographies and descendants of the Corps of Discovery, the Indian Nations through whose lands the Corps passed, and the establishment of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.

Our staff strives to provide reference services to authors, historians, teachers, students, artists, filmmakers, and visitors from around the world. We encourage new research on all aspects of the Lewis and Clark story and its context.

The library and archive is located in the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center* in Great Falls, MT and open to the public. To visit the library, paid admission to the visitor center is not required.
