Clay County Archives Center & Old Jail
The Clay County Historical Archives in Green Cove Springs, Florida is not only a fun and educational place to visit, but it is also a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the history of our county and state. While nearly all of the county’s modern official records are available electronically online or at the main courthouse through the Clay County Clerk’s Office, our historic hardcopy records are stored in the Clay County Historical Archives at the renovated Old Jail facility off State Road 16 at 21 Gratio Place.
The Archives is a hub of information for genealogical enthusiasts and researchers, too. Check out our Historical Archives video and find even more photographs and historic details by visiting our Clay County Historical Archives website found by visiting www.clayclerk.com.
The historic buildings located on the grounds of the Historic Triangle site are often open and available for tours and special public events, like the Celebrate Clay County History Festival each May and the Tales from the Clink event each October. This includes the Archives Center, Old Jail, 1890 Historic Courthouse, TAPS Military Monument, Old Railroad Depot and Clay History Museum. Our Archives Specialist frequently conducts public presentations and is available to be a guest speaker for schools and community organizations.
