At Tarves Heritage Centre you can see....
The Heritage Centre
The Heritage Centre opened in 2004 and is housed in part of a Victorian school dating back to 1837. Extensively restored as a museum to blend with the village's Conservation Area status, the Heritage Centre is now a major attraction in Tarves and the surrounding area.
Just inside the entrance there is a small reception area with seating. This is a popular spot for visitors to have a rest and for some to reminisce about days gone by!
The 2019 season includes fashion items and accessories from Victorian and Edwardian times.
A new display features artefacts and records from local trades which were located in the village. eg Cummings the bakers and Gibbs the shoemakers.
We have a small case with a selection of VERY old artefacts. A bronze age sword and some flint arrowheads.
A large display of carpenter tools and blacksmith tools show how much manufacturing has changed.
A small but delightful collection of glass bottles makes an attractive display. Plastic bottles just can't compete!
