The Studio

The Local Archive can be found downtown in the heart of Fort Wayne, IN.

118 W Columbia Street

Suite 201

Fort Wayne, IN 46802

Located on the Historic Landing District, we are now fully integrated in the fabric of history in our little-big city. Our new space once was the old Papermill factory. One of THE ORIGINAL buildings here in the center of Fort Wayne. We have more information (and photos) to come, but for now keep your eyes peeled this Spring for our public launch!

More than a studio space, The Local Archive is designed to help Creatives grow and thrive in their own unique ways. We offer an open concept with tools every Creative needs such as evolving sets and props to breathe life into new ideas. Although the space itself holds a richness, the most priceless piece is having YOU become a part of The Local Archive community.


Without you, we're just blank space.
