Our Historic Building

Thomas W. Phillips Memorial Archives

Our world-class collection is housed in a magnificent structure, the Thomas W. Phillips Memorial Archives, in Nashville, Tennessee. The building is in the tradition of Tudor-Gothic architecture and art, and employs stone sculpture and stained glass to depict history and divine revelation.


In 2006 the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. This splendid example of the academic Tudor Gothic style was honored for its architectural magnificence as well as the structure's distinctive story of a faith tradition as reflected in the history and symbolism of the artwork in its stained glass and sculpture. Visitors to the Archives often remark on the beauty and meaning of the stone shields and stained glass windows.
