Local History

Our local history collection includes historic and contemporary aspects of our region and contains parish maps, books on the origin of our towns and several of our heritage buildings, books about the area and books by local authors. Local newspapers are available on microfilm.

Should you have material, old photographs, documents, maps or any information on people, places or events connected with Mid-Western Regional Council and our villages or towns, we would appreciate hearing from you.
