Falkirk Local History Society worked with the THI team to discover more about the buildings within the THI area. Members of FLHS who had little or no experience of historical research picked a building of interest and learned how to carry out research using local archives, libraries and online resources. The group learned line drawing techniques from Society Member, John Reid. The results of their research were published in the Society’s Journal Calatria in late 2015.
Some of the buildings whose stories which were‘discovered’ were:
- The York Cafe
- Cross Keys Inn, 185 High Street
- Falkirk Town Mission Building
- Wilsons Building
- Mathiesons Building, High Street
The Falkirk Local History Society meets on the third Wednesday of every month from September to May in the hall of Falkirk Trinity Church (previously known as Old St Modan’s Parish Church).
