Founded in 1996, St Ives Archive has assembled information on every aspect of the heritage of St Ives, and houses a growing collection of books, newspaper articles, maps, legal documents, correspondence, catalogues and images.

Our aim is to develop and maintain a local historical archive for the benefit and use of the public, covering all aspects of history, geography, natural history, the arts, architecture and the inhabitants of the parishes of St Ives, Carbis Bay, Lelant, Halsetown and Towednack.

We are staffed by volunteers who have special areas of expertise and are funded through grants from local businesses, membership, sales of publications and donations.

The Archive welcomes visitors to come research a specific topic, however, we ask you to please make contact in advance so that our volunteers can prepare for your visit ahead of time. Find out more at
