The object of the Society is the study of the history and natural history, archaeology and literature of the area of Tweeddale in all its aspects and to encourage throughout the area a balanced appreciation of all aspects of our society and environment. The scope of lectures and visits may be extended to cover other areas.
A History of Peebles published in 1990 states that a “Peeblesshire Society” was founded in the 1880’s. No records now exist of this early organisation but the current Society can trace its origins to February 1913.
Membership, currently in the region of 150, is open to all on payment of an Annual Subscription which is at present £10.
