Archive was established in 1919 as the Archive of the Novgorod Gubernya. In 1922 it was reorganized into the Novgorod Branch of the Central Gubernial Archive of the Russian Federal Soviet Republic. In 1930 it was reorganized into the Novgorod Branch of the Leningrad Oblast Archive and in 1932 into the Novgorod Branch of Leningrad Oblast Archival Authority. In 1944, due to the administration reform of the Soviet state, it became State Archive of the Novgorod Oblast.

In 2008 the Archive was united with the local former Communist Party Archive (from 1991 Archive of the Newest Political History of the Novgorod Oblast).
