Presbytery Records

The presbytery records at Columbia Seminary include both records that were transferred from the Presbyterian Historical Society – Montreat and records that have been deposited at the seminary since then. The denominations represented are current PC(USA), former PCUS, and ARPC congregations. Cataloging of these records is presently underway. If you have any questions, please contact us for assistance.

The CTS Special Collections and Archives department continues to accept materials on deposit, including records of presbyteries and both active and dissolved congregations. For information about depositing records at Columbia Seminary, please contact the archivist.

This list of presbyteries that have deposited records at CTS is being made available with the following advisory:

This is a very simple list of presbytery names. It is not a catalog record and for the most part does not include holdings details or cross-references to help point to
alternate names, regions, and so on. As we add records to our online catalog, the additional reference points will become available.
Access to unprocessed records and records less than 50 years old is restricted.
Records whose transfer has not been completed are not included on the list.
