Sherman Library

The Sherman Library includes more than 3,000 rare and modern books, pamphlets, journals and ephemera. The archive contains the papers of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, research materials gathered by scholars, and genealogical information on each of the Corps of Discovery members. As "Keepers of the Story", we are the official archive of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial, 2003–2006, ensuring that documents, memorabilia, and events created to commemorate this event remain accessible to the public. For more information, or to set up an appointment, call our business office at (406) 454-1234 or e-mail us at library@lewisandclark.org.

The Foundation's William P. Sherman Library and Archives is located in the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center* in Great Falls, MT. 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.
