Local History Centre

THE LOCAL HISTORY CENTRE - situated upstairs at 17 Lower Fore Street, Saltash - above the museum. Recently it has been used by Saltash College for Further Education to hold its Local History evening classes.

TRACING YOUR FAMILY TREE - The Local History Centre can be of assistance in tracing your family tree, or even the history of the house you live in. Records from local churches, burial records, census returns, maps etc. are held. See the Contact Us page, or call in when the centre is open.

PHOTOGRAPHIC COLLECTION - We have a collection of over 26,000 photographs, with more being added all the time. If you have any photographs of local interest either to donate, or that we can copy, please get in touch. Copies of photographs are available - contact us for more information.

DOCUMENTS - Our collection also includes large quantities of newspapers, documents, traders' bills, event programmes etc. We also have a comparison chart of Fore Street shops and businesses over the last 150 years or so.
