Anglesea & District Historical Society Inc.

[ Home ]

The Anglesea & District Historical Society is a non-profit organisation staffed by volunteer members of the community, whose aim is to research and preserve history of the local area. We welcome new members. If you are interested in joining our group please print the Membership Form.

Monthly Program: Each month we have a variety of topics and activities to suit the historian, with guest speakers, historical DVD's / videos, and outings.
Meetings are held on the first Sunday of each even month at 2:00 pm at History House.
Outings or activities are held on the odd months: March, May, July, September, and November. Program details.

Research service:
Your queries about Anglesea and district's history, early families or houses are very welcome. If research is required, there is an up-front charge of $10 for up to an hour of our research, and then $10/hour after that if further research on the topic is requested. Written reports can be provided, possibly also with photographs if available.

Quarterly Newsletter: Coastal Current.
