Kingston Heritage Service invites you to build Our 100 Histories on a new interactive digital map, Our Borough. Over the next year, we will be searching for the 100 Histories that residents and people connected to Kingston Upon Thames feel best represents the heritage of the borough.


Councillor Rebekah Moll, Portfolio Holder for Culture at Kingston Council, said: “We want to encourage everyone to think of heritage as broadly as possible, plot the stories, places, objects, events and people they want to remember, as well as share pieces of heritage that others may not be aware of. We hope that Our 100 Histories will help all residents feel represented and excited about the borough's diverse heritage, as well as the collections at Kingston Museum and Kingston History Centre.”


In April 2022, after seeing which pins have been interacted with most by users, Kingston Heritage Service will share the top Our 100 Histories and use this to create activities, events, and improve the heritage offer produced by Kingston Heritage Service. Any submissions not already featured in the collections at Kingston Museum and Kingston History Centre will be reviewed for inclusion in the collections.
