About the Club

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

For one hundred years we have encouraged interest in Edinburgh’s history through lectures and visits. We publish The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, renowned as an authoritative source for residents and researchers alike – indeed anyone who shares our delight in the city’s rich heritage.

Find out more about the Club’s history in this article by Steven Robb, OEC Vice-President.
