John Gray Centre

About this Organisation

At the John Gray Centre, the East Lothian Council Archives service and the Local History Centre join up.

The Archives aim to inform, delight and engage. It is our responsibility to collect, care for and make accessible the historical records of the county. As a result we hold a large collection of original source material going back almost 700 years. The collection includes manuscripts, minute books and images relating to many aspects of East Lothian’s history. We are also the repository for records of East Lothian Council and its predecessors.

Looking to the future as well as the past, we are always looking to expand our collections and welcome digital as well as physical deposits.
