WELCOME to the Friends of
Wolverhampton City Archives
Originally built as a town house for the wealthy Molineux family in the mid 1700’s, the Molineux Hotel is a Grade II listed Building.
Ravaged by fire in 2003, the building was restored with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and is now the home of Wolverhampton City Archives.
LOCAL HISTORY FAIR
Discover the rich history of our town at the upcoming local history fair, where local residents can delve into the fascinating stories and events that have shaped our community. Mark your calendars for the all-day event on Saturday 21st Octobr and get ready to explore exhibits contributed by local historians, organisations, and individuals. From insightful displays to fascinating presentations, this fair offers a unique opportunity to learn about our town's heritage firsthand.
The local history fair is not only a chance to connect with our past, but it is also a platform for local residents to contribute their own stories and insights. If you have a piece of our town's history to share, whether it's a family heirloom, a personal recollection, or a document that sheds light on the past, we invite you to be a part of this special event. Join us as we celebrate our shared history and create a community resource that will be cherished for years to come.
Wolverhampton Archives is a treasure trove of local history.
It holds collections of historical documents, deeds and records providing information about our past. These are our collective memories, allowing society to hold government and organisations to account.
These help us explore our identities, underpin research, inspire creativity and they connect generations with our stories from the past, to the present, to the future. Archive records available to the public help us to keep history alive.
