The Kilmacolm Civic Trust Archive has a collection of photographs, slides, postcards, documents, books, artifacts and maps, mainly from the 19th Century to the present day. The holdings reflect the varied donations of the residents over the years and provide a fascinating insight into village life. 

For a number of years this was looked after by the late Mrs Irene Dunn. The History of Kilmacolm by David Roe, which is mentioned elsewhere on the website, was a project encouraged by Mrs Dunn and aided by reference to the archives. It has also been of use in academic research.
The archive has information on a number of different topics, such as agriculture, education, local societies, and railways. The material is in a variety of forms, e.g. photographs, books, memoirs, newspapers, show programmes and maps. 

A small team of dedicated local people have indexed the materials, You can now search the database, view selected documents on-line and download material for personal use. If you plan to reproduce any of the material for other than personal use or wish access to the original material please contact the KCT Archivist, (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to discuss permission.

We welcome new material that is likely to enhance the Collection.
