Falkirk Local History Society is working with the THI Team to discover more about the buildings within the THI area. Members of FLHS who have little or no experience of historical research have picked a building of interest and are learning how to carry out research using local archives, libraries and online resources. The group have also been learning line drawing techniques from Society Member John Reid. The results of their research will be published in the Society’s Journal Calatria in late 2015.
Some of the buildings whose stories being ‘discovered’ are:
- The York Cafe
- Cross Keys Inn, 185 High Street
- Falkirk Town Mission Building
- Wilsons Building
- Mathiesons Building, High Street
If anyone who is not a member of the FLHS wants to find out more about carrying out research or has information or memories about the buildings listed above please contact us.
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). Visitors are very welcome. Meetings start promptly at 7.30pm. Visit their website for more information: www.falkirklocalhistorysociety.co.uk.
