Aims & activities
Hythe Museum was set up by Davis Oaklands Charitable Gift. Dr Davis left a will dated 17th April 1931 whereby he conveyed his property for the provision and maintenance of buildings and grounds at Oaklands, Stade Street, Hythe for the purpose of local council offices, local history room, museum, art, culture, sport and recreation.
An ambitious future
As the sole corporate trustee to Davis Oaklands Charitable Gift, Hythe Town Council is conscious of its responsibility to enhance and promote the museum. The council has draft plans to substantially modernise and increase the size and resources of the museum. These plans are currently going through a feasibility study, following which we will ask Hythe residents for their views.
