Discover Your Story…

Wrexham Archives and Local studies is a wonderful place to discover more about the history of the communities in and around the Wrexham County Borough

Wrexham Archives hold records relating to the history of the County Borough of Wrexham since its creation in 1996 and also records relating to the area when it was part of the old counties of Denbighshire and Flintshire.

The service actively collects and preserves historical records and makes them available to the public for research purposes. We are always happy to add records to our collections which relate to the history of the County Borough.

The records that we hold include maps and plans, photographs, newspapers, pamphlets and business and family collections. We also hold a large collection of local studies library books as well as providing internet access to a wide range of local and family history sources.


We are always happy to add to our collections, please contact us for more details.
