The Miles Historical Room preserves the materials that document the history of Burlington and, to a lesser extent, its surrounding towns. These materials are available to researchers and the general public.
The major emphasis of the collection is material of significant local historical information about Burlington including genealogical resources. The room is also home to an institutional collection documenting the history of the Burlington Public Library. Presently, the collection includes materials by and about the people of Burlington, town annual reports, Burlington High School Yearbooks, street lists, maps, phone books and genealogical information.
A variety of formats are collected, including but not limited to books, pamphlets, maps, photographs and microfilm.
