Ladysmith & District Historical Society



Welcome to the Ladysmith & District Historical Society Website. Please refer back often as we are continually adding content to this site.

We have started 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 and district’s history and to help preserve its heritage.
