Donaghmore Historical Society was established in 1983 with membership open to any persons supporting the objects of the society:
- The study of and encouragement of public interest in the history, folklore, archaeology and antiquities of the region in and around Donaghmore.
- The publication of research papers on the above topics and to establish a society archive.
The Donaghmore Historical Society meets on a regular basis to research, document, preserve and share information in regards to its interest. Currently the Society is housed in a converted National School (1885) and offers a place for researchers and interested parties to take a step back in time through their collection of photographs, old school roll books, land registration ledgers, documents and artefacts of local interest including townland maps.
A yearly programme of public meetings are held on a monthly basis where individuals within in the community present their own interpretations of historic events, townland studies and many topics of yesteryear to very attentive audience.
Townland Research facilities, archives and personal guidance from members who have a wealth of experience are available at the Heritage Centre, Pomeroy Road, Donaghmore, Co. Tyrone.
Donaghmore Historical Society gratefully acknowledges the development
of our website with support from Mid Ulster District Council.
