Research at Randall House Museum

Randall House Museum has a small library of local history books and some genealogical volumes with associated research files. Original historic photographs, a small archival collection of documents and the Society’s institutional archives are kept at the Esther Clark Wright Archives at Acadia University.  There is no public access to the archival collections at the university, however, museum staff will be pleased to help you find what you are looking for and arrange for reproduction if required.
