The museum is run entirely by volunteers and is a project of Oxford House Industrial History Society, which was formed in 1971 following a course of lectures given by the late Ray Bowen on industrial archaeology at Oxford House Adult Education Centre. The society displays its collection of artefacts, memorabilia and photographs illustrating some of the industrial history of the area: coal mining, the iron industry, tram roads, railways etc.
OHIHS meet every Friday evening:
Members have a general interest in all aspects of industrial, social and local history (although we are not a society specifically for the study of local history). Members' contributions are informal short talks on any interesting subject, maps, documents, photos or slides. Visitors and friends with an interest in industrial history are welcome.
