The Brontė Society was founded in 1893 and is the oldest literary society in the world. There was a time when, after the furore created by the extraordinary family of poets and authors, living in a remote Yorkshire village, interest in them began to die down, although some enthusiastic visitors were already making their way to Haworth before Charlotte died in 1855.
Early in 1902 the Society was registered as a company without a share capital but incorporated by guarantee. Little or nothing had existed by way of a constitution and this step was taken to give the Society a legal status and hopefully to encourage more people to lend material to the museum.
