Local History

The Lamb Inn, Carfax. c. 1855

Horsham Museum and Art Gallery has a wealth of resources to help you explore the history of your town and district, with documents and artefacts dating back over 1000 years.

In addition to the objects in our main collections, we have a large photographic archive that chronicles the changing appearance of the town from the mid nineteenth century to the present; a wealth of documents and manuscripts produced by local organisations, business and individuals. A selection of books published on the locality; and numerous ephemera items from the past 200 years that illustrate various town events.  For more information view our collections.  All of the items in our collection are available to view. We ask that you contact us to book a session,  giving at last three days notice. Please either email the Museum or call us on 01403 254 959.

We regret that Museum staff are unable to conduct research on behalf of individuals although the District local History Groups may be able to help.    Click on the right hand lower menu to discover more about the past at Horsham Museum, Horsham History and how to research the history of your house or family. You can also find contact details for local history groups if you are interested in the history of your village, and you can also find information on Causeway House - a museum piece in its own right!
