The beginnings of the State District Archive Teplice date back to 1918, when the town archive in Teplice was founded under the leadership of Prof. Paula Wanie. The archive was first located at the town hall. In 1939, it was moved to the former Jewish ghetto and at the end of the war to the Market Square. After 1945, the town councillors attempted to merge the archive and the museum into one institution and therefore the archive was moved to the Claryov chateau. Due to the rapid increase in material, the space allocated to it was not enough and, in 1954, the district archive was moved to the unmanaged building of the Municipal Museum in Školní Street, pursuant to Government Order 29/54 Coll. After the administrative reform of 1960, the district archives of the abolished district of Bílina and Duchcov were merged with it. In 1962, the fonds of the former district archive from Duchcov were moved to Teplice and the depository was preserved in Bílina until 2003. At present, the archive is still located in Školní Street. Its building underwent extensive reconstruction in the 1990s.
