building our collections
Tamworth Historical Society has been collecting items since 1957. We have over 20,000 items of local significance, some of national significance.
When we accept an item into the collection we like to know as much as we can about it:
the history of the item
who owned it
who used it
where did that person live, what did they do
when did they use it, own it etc
what stories can you tell us about the item?
So many questions!
Help us tell the stories of our city and region.
Please do not leave items at Calala Cottage Museum without first contacting us. If you cannot come to us, we may be able to come to you.
