Mansfield Historical Society

Mansfield Historical Society aims to preserve and promote the history of Mansfield and surrounding districts.

Located at the old Mansfield Railway Station building in High Street, its committee of volunteers work together to present the current – ‘known history of the region’ so together we can, conserve, share, explore, remember & learn about the many valuable stories of its past.

Its considerable archives & databases, contain a wealth of information about the history of Mansfield and the surrounding district including genealogical information, microfiche documents, photos, memorabilia, maps and an extensive clothing collection. The Society has many books and photographs of the local area that are also available for purchase.

The Mansfield Historical Society warmly welcomes new members and volunteers. It encourages them to become involved with the preservation of historical information, by archiving & digitally storing items,  helping with enquiries from the community and visitors during opening hours at the Mansfield Railway Station rooms and assisting with our various activities.
