Boilermaker Archives

The Boilermakers Archives is the physical repository of artifacts from more than 100 years of history of our union and the industries we serve.

Located next door to the Boilermakers National Training Center, the archives contains thousands of photographs, tools and equipment, lodge records, and other artifacts. Exhibits depict Boilermakers from all historic eras and show how Boilermaker work was performed in the past.

At present, the Boilermaker Archives is open by appointment only. To arrange for a visit or to donate materials to the archives, contact International Secretary-Treasurer William Creeden at 913-371-2640 or write him at International headquarters.

The Boilermakers’ History Preservation Department works with the Boilermaker Archives to preserve historical artifacts and documents associated with the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, its members, and its lodges.
