Congress established the National Archives in 1934 to preserve and care for the records of the U.S. Government. Previously, federal records were kept in various basements, attics, abandoned buildings, and other storage places with little security or concern for storage conditions. In 1935, Archives staff and WPA workers began to survey federal records and the next year the first batch of federal records were transferred to the new National Archives Building in Washington, DC.
