The Stewarton & District Historical Societyis a group of enthusiastic volunteers who are mainly residents of Stewarton in East Ayrshire, Scotland. Our mission is to record and preserve the history of our local area and make it accessible to both the local and wider world communities.
We have developed a small one room museumwhich is housed on the first floor of the Town House in Avenue Square, Stewarton.
We hold regular presentations throughout the months, September to May.The presentations are wide ranging and include local history, Scottish history and general topics of interest.
Weorganise visits to historic houses / places once a year.
We assist, where possible, people doing research into their genealogy, if the family has links to Stewarton and District.
