The Society put on an excellent Exhibition in the Leisure Centre to accompany the 2015 Coalburn Gala on the 4th July. The main feature was on 'School Photographs' from Bellfield and Coalburn Schools. There was also the usual archive images of the village. The Primary School pictures attracted great interest.
The Jim Hamilton Heritage Society of Coalburn was established in 2004.
Meetings are held normally on the FIRST and THIRD Wednesdays each month; from SEPTEMBER until APRIL, 7.30pm - 9pm, in Coalburn Bowling Club, next to the Coalburn Miners Welfare's One Stop Shop.
There is an invited guest speaker at each meeting and non-members are welcome to attend.
Coalburn's One Stop Shop
The Society runs the Heritage Centre in the One Stop Shop which contains an archive of photographs, documents and artifacts relating to Coalburn's social history and mining heritage. The majority of these were collected by the late Jim Hamilton.
