About The Old Edinburgh Club

About us

The Old Edinburgh Club (OEC) is the city’s local history society, concerned with all aspects of the capital’s history and development.

For more than one hundred years we have encouraged interest through lectures, visits, projects and our annual journal, the Book of the Old Edinburgh Club.

We are a charity registered in Scotland (SC006177), managed by a Council of volunteer trustees.

Join us and take advantage of these and our other activities, exploring Edinburgh through history.
