The Stewarton & District Historical Society  is 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.

Enjoy a browse through the other pages of our website.

Hope to see you soon at our museum.

Thanks to Robert Miller, plumber, for the WW 1 items donated to the society.

They belonged to his father, Matthew Miller.

A few of the items are shown above.

Robert’s father, Matthew Miller, is the soldier at the front of the photograph with the chin bandage.

 The cards had been sent home to Stewarton and the tin has his initials on it.

We have a one room museum which is housed on the first floor of the Town House in  Avenue Square, Stewarton.
