Eaglesham History Society

Eaglesham History Society was established in September 2012 following the successful launch of the Eaglesham Heritage Trail.  A group of interested people attended an open meeting at which Eaglesham History Society was born.

The aims of the Society are to provide knowledge of local and national history, collect and catalogue items of local history and to undertake research into local history.

Monthly members' meetings are normally held from September to April each year, at which specialist guest speakers give illustrated talks on a wide range of history-related subjects. Our talks have included such subjects as:

  • The Glasgow, Paisley and Johnstone Canal
  • The Vikings
  • Rosa Parks and Montgomery Bus Boycott
  • History of Scottish Art
  • Archaeology of Renfrewshire
  • Two Planned Communities: Eaglesham and East Kilbride

The Society has also run community events such as community archaeology, guided history walks and local history exhibitions at Eaglesham Fair and East Renfrewshire Door Open Days. We also work closely with East Renfrewshire Heritage Service, local primary and secondary schools.

We are proud to be supported by the Best Western Eglinton Arms Hotel where meet on the third Wednesday of the month from September till April. Please note December's meeting takes place on the second Wednesday of the month.

Membership is £12 per annum (running for 12 months from September).  Entry to monthly meetings are FREE for members or £3 for visitors.  Visitors warmly welcomed.
