The Carsphairn Heritage Centre holds pictures and various kinds of archive material. They have tape-recorded and written interviews on a range of subjects, including a number about the forestry industry which is prevalent in the area. Many of their interviews have been transcribed and edited and published in a quarterly newsletter. The newsletter also contains pictures bequeathed to the Heritage Centre, reprints of old articles and so on. The Heritage Centre has also published the results of research undertaken into local subjects, such as lead mines, the impact of forestry on the landscape and the economy, legends and schools in the Glenkens through the ages.
