The Brontë Society Collections

The Brontë Society was formed in 1893 to collect and preserve what remained of the Brontës’ former possessions. In 1928 the Society acquired Haworth Parsonage which became home to their growing Collection. The Museum Collection consists of material which belonged to the Brontë family, their friends and associates. It includes books, manuscripts, letters, paintings, drawings, furniture, household items and personal possessions. The Research Library Collection, also housed within the Parsonage building, contains secondary source material and a wide range of biographical, critical, topographical and related works on the Brontë family. Today the Brontë Society continues to carry out its founding aim; collecting and exhibiting material relating to the Brontës’ lives and works and making them known to a wider audience.
