This website is the home of Harpenden & District Local History Society and fulfils dual roles by introducing the Society’s activities and inviting contributions and comments on Harpenden’s local history.
You can join here as a member to become more fully involved in the Society’s activities generally and/or as an active volunteer – including our preparations for opening Harpenden Museum. You will also find information about forthcoming events, including meetings, when these resume and to which members and visitors are welcome.
The website includes a growing collection of photos, memories, stories and historical information in Harpenden’s History. We hope to prompt you to take an active interest in all we do and perhaps encourage you to research unexplored topics from the earliest human habitations to the every-changing communities which make Harpenden thrive. Our archives, which will be stored in the Les Casey Archive Room, are full of untold stories.
