Welcome to the new website from Comunn Eachdraidh Nis – the Ness Historical Society based in Cross, Ness, Isle of Lewis. Comunn Eachdraidh Nis was established in 1977 when the need for a facility to collect local history was realised.
The first team of ‘history collectors’ were employed through the Job Creation scheme and visited houses in the area with voice recorders.
We have come a long way since then and since 2012 have been housed in the old Cross Primary School in North Dell. Our museum is accredited, we have a vast archive room with croft histories, photographs, paintings to commemorate World War I plus much more, a café and gift shop.
We will have a lot of rich material from our archives available for you here soon, together with weblogs written by members of the Comunn Eachdraidh
