The Society  (MHHS)

Registered charity 2014 No. 1157244

The Market Harborough Historical Society, (originally, The Market Harborough Archaeological & Historical Society), was founded in 1931 and has been active ever since as a forum for those interested in local history and archaeology. MHHS holds monthly talks from September to May, with a field trip “The Summer Excursion” in June each year. A Local History Conference “The History Day” is organised annually, in memory of former local historian Mr J. C. Davies and former MHHS President Michael Brown, both of whom contributed considerably to the Society.

 

The Society’s collection of historical memorabilia collected over many years formed the basis of the Harborough Museum when it was opened in 1983 as a joint  venture between Leicestershire County Council, Harborough District Council and the Market Harborough Historical Society.
