|Building Description||We are located in the former Molineux Hotel Building. Built in the mid-18th century, the building was originally home to the Molineux family, before becoming a hotel in the mid-19th century. It continued as a hotel and a pub until the late 1970s, at which point the building began to fall into disrepair. In 2003, following a terrible fire, the building was bought by the city Council and has since been restored to its former glory.|
|Collections Overview||Our collections relate to the history of Wolverhampton. Documents available include books, maps, plans; over 30,000 photographs; records of local churches, schools and other institutions; records of the city council and its predecessors; and records of local industries, clubs and societies.|
