The Beverley Historical Society was formed by volunteers in 1987 to foster the safe-keeping and promotion of Beverley’s Heritage.
The society operates from the Dead Finish Museum in Hunt Road, Beverley. The museum is housed in the oldest building in Beverley, the “Wheatsheaf Inn”, built by Alfred Smith in 1872. It holds a very fine collection of artefacts depicting life in Beverley since settlement in 1831.
