Egremont Archives Room

Egremont’s Local History Museum & Archives Room was established in 1976 as part of the Town’s Bicentennial celebration. It is located in space donated by the Town in the rooms upstairs of the historic Egremont Academy building on Button Ball Lane, today the Egremont Free Library. Its books, photos, and historic artifacts were all donated to the Museum by the Town and its residents, past and present.
