The Frome Society for Local Study was founded in 1958 by a number of Frome townspeople who realised there was a need to make the history of Frome and the district better known, and to preserve its historic buildings and records.
Currently, the Frome Society for Local Study is actively involved in:
- An annual programme of winter lectures
- An annual programme of summer visits to places of interest
- Continuing its wide range of research, donations, and publications
