The Frome Society for Local Study was founded
in 1958
by a number of townspeople who realised there was a
need to
make the history of Frome and the district better
known, and
to preserve its historic buildings and records
In the past. Frome Society for Local Study has:
*   Helped to establish and run Frome Museum.
*   Gathered and safeguarded information on Frome's
history.
*   Played a leading role in conserving historic
buildings,
    including Marston House.
*   Given donations to many local projects.
*   Given financial assistance for research.
*   Purchased and repaired important relics.
*   Provided plaques to mark buildings of interest.
*   Helped to set up Frome Town Twinning.
*   Published over 80 titles of historic and local
interest,
    selling by post & online new titles and Year Books
Currently, the Frome Society for Local Study is
actively
involved in:
*  An annual programme of winter lectures.
*  An annual programme of summer visits to places of
interest.
*  Continuing its wide range of research, donations,
and publications.
