“To Research, Record and Preserve”

Welcome to the new Ladysmith & District Historical Society Website. Please refer back often as we will continually be adding content to this site in the coming months, including an online Shop.

We will also be restoring our large collection of images such as the Knight collection. The site now has two search features: one for images only and one for all content.

The Ladysmith and District Historical Society was incorporated as a not-for-profit society in 1999. Our mission is to promote awareness of Ladysmith’s history and to help preserve its heritage.
