The newly built Billy Graham Archive and Research Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, opened Nov. 7, the birthday of the late evangelist.
The 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art research center brings together videos, cassettes, films, newspaper clippings, sermon notes, correspondence and a lifetime of memorabilia from Graham’s career, which began with a sermon at a Florida Baptist church in 1937.
The building is located across the road from the Billy Graham Library, the barn-shaped museum on 20 landscaped acres where visitors can trace Graham’s journey through multimedia presentations and interactive kiosks.
Unlike the library, the archive is not open to the public. Researchers must schedule a visit.
