Explore Archive, Local & Family History

Explore the rich and fascinating history of Perth and Kinross through its historical records. Our archive and local history collections date back to the 12th century and include manuscripts, books, pamphlets, photographs, maps, plans, film and sound recordings. We preserve, conserve, catalogue and digitise these unique collections, making them freely available to anyone who is interested in finding out about their past.
