• The Denmark Historical Society was established in 1983 with the aim of preserving the heritage of the Denmark town and surrounding region, its people and culture, and its industrial past. Membership of the Society is currently around 150 and new members are always welcome.

    Through the efforts of its enthusiastic volunteer staff, the Society maintains an extensive collection of historical artefacts, photographs, oral histories and paper archives dating from the turn of the 20th century to the present day.

    Our growing collection is accessible to the public at the Denmark Historical Museum where visitors can view our displays and get help researching the district’s past. Visitors can also make purchases from the Society’s growing list of significant publications documenting various aspects of the district’s history.
