The Archives is a repository for textual records dating from the initial feasibility study by North East Coal in 1973, to the present, and of photo images including the development of the coal mines, the construction of the town of Tumbler Ridge, the people, clubs and events.

The Archives were established in 2015, funded through grants and private donations and housed in a purpose built room within the Tumbler Ridge Museum.

Aside from textural records and photo images, the archives also Include maps, digital images, drawings and blueprints, magazines, slides, newspapers, sound recordings of pioneers, and a small book library.

Artifacts, photos of pioneers and maps of the surrounding area and a Sports Hall of Fame can be found in the TR Community Centre . The history of Electric Rail is housed in “The Caboose”, located in the downtown core.

Acquisitions are ongoing and the future plans are to upload the archives digitally.
