The Presbyterian Heritage Center at Montreat is willing to review the following for possible inclusion in its permanent archival collection (after January 2008):
- Manuscripts, letters, documents not required to be deposited with the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia or at a Presbyterian Seminary, such as Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA.

We are specializing in the history of Montreat and Presbyterianism both in the U.S. and through American missionaries around the world.
