Tarves Heritage Centre is housed in part of the old Victorian school building dating back to 1837. In 1911 the building closed as a school and was used as a boot and shoe factory, a cycle repair shop and as an electrician's store. In 2004 extensive renovation created a museum which reflects the Conservation Area status of Tarves Village.
The Centre includes some fascinating displays about local history. Explore family archives and view a large collection of old photographs. Write on a slate in the Victorian classroom and dress up in fashions from the past.The team of friendly volunteers are on hand to guide visitors and help with family history queries.
