Our Society

Harpenden and District Local History Society was founded in 1973 to research and record the history of Harpenden and District and make this known by means of meetings, publications and exhibitions.  We have an extensive collection of maps, photographs and artefacts relating to the past history of Harpenden which will be housed in the Les Casey Archives, part of Harpenden Museum In the Eric Morecambe Centre once this is open. Items not on display can be viewed at other times by appointment with our curator, and we will be pleased to help with your research - please contact us.

It is intended to resume our evening meetings later in 2021,  on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 8pm in a Function Room in the Eric Morecambe Centre.  The programme of meetings can be found in News and Events.

We also produce three Newsletters a year containing photographs and articles relating to historical events in and around Harpenden.  Some of these articles can be found on the individual pages of this website.
