Welcome to Carsphairn Heritage Archive!
Carsphairn Heritage Group started its life with an exhibition of local history in Lagwyne Hall. By 1987 it was a fully formed group with a collection of family history records, photographs, slides and locally significant artefacts.
The Heritage & Craft Centre was built in 1992 to house the collection, provide space for a yearly exhibition and to provide a focus point for visitors carrying out family research.
In 2019 we are undergoing the ambitious project of digitising our collection as far as possible and making it available online, preserving the work carried out by many volunteers and making it available to researchers everywhere.
If you'd like to get involved in the digitisation process, please get in touch!
