Olney History – The Society was founded in 1997 by a group of like-minded people determined to keep Olney history alive for all generations of people in the town and those who have since moved away from Olney.
(1) The monthly ‘Talks’ element of the society has now been discontinued.
(2) The Family History Search Facility is undergoing some technical issues at the moment, but is currently fully functional.
This new article presents the ten panels currently being displayed during the period November 2019 to January 2020 by Discover MK Showcase on the first floor of MK Central Library. The panels indicate how the Georgian era influenced life in Olney and the surrounding area. Find out how the Cowper & Newton Museum and the Olney & District Historical Society delved deep to tell these lost stories.
