Rushden & District History Society was formed early in 1991. It aims to encourage and facilitate the study and preservation of Northamptonshire history.

The society is run by a committee of up to twelve, elected annually at the Annual General Meeting (A.G.M.).

Subscriptions are £6 for an individual, and £9 for family membership. We welcome visitors to our meetings at a cost of £2.50 at the door. Members pay £1.50. Membership forms may be obtained by clicking here .

The Rushden Research Group is part of the society and created the Hearts & Soles heritage website at and a copy is held on a touch screen terminal at Rushden Museum.
