Local History Local History

Through its local history collection, Somerset Libraries aims to preserve and promote the history and culture of the region. History is a special part of libraries. Items are often rare, sometimes even unique, and are kept for the enjoyment of current library and future generations.

The Local History Collection is a compilation of resources reflecting the history of Somerset. The focus is on printed, published and paper-based material specifically relating to the history of Somerset. The collection is located at Council’s Esk Library.

It’s always interesting to find out about your local town or family history. You’re never sure what you might find.

To find out more about the Somerset region’s interesting and unique background visit Picture Somerset at https://catalogue.somerset.qld.gov.au/montage/gallery.aspx.

Indigenous Australians are advised that Picture Somerset may include images or names of people now deceased.

Digitising of the photograph collection is ongoing.

Donations and copies of heritage material is appreciated.
