Falkirk Community Trust is currently exhibiting “Our Stories – Views of the Past” at Callendar House in Callendar Park.
The free exhibition showcases some of the history across the local Falkirk area, discovered by volunteers from Great Place Falkirk. Falkirk Community Trust will use their museum collections to give these, initially digital, stories a real-life presence.
The exhibition is available to view until Sunday 29th August. While places are free, booking ahead online is essential, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Throughout lockdown, the Great Place Falkirk project has continued to explore the history of our local area, with teams of volunteers contributing to the growing Our Stories website.
The exhibition begins with our local industrial past and explores brickworks, the iron industry, soap works, and some famous local names associated with well-known drinks and snacks, with stories written in volunteers’ own voices.
