With clear objectives from the start, meticulous research of the town’s buildings, records, local archaeology and its people has resulted in eighteen books and ninety-four twice-yearly bulletins being published.
Perhaps the most important contribution was its involvement with the creation of Petersfield Museum in 1999, the basis of which was the Society’s collection of objects and archives.
