2013 was a particularly busy year for Keilor Historical Society Inc. There were numerous events held to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Local Government in Keilor.

The weekend of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March were of primary interest to us with Sunday March 3 being the actual anniversary date.

On the Friday we had a 'Back to Keilor' event and there was an exhibition set up in the Old Shire Hall. Within this exhibition there were panels of our former exhibitions plus original ratebooks and Mayoral costumes. This was followed by the renaming of the Keilor Sports Oval to Joseph (Joe) Brown oval.

On the Saturday we had our annual open day at Harrick's and the exhibition at the Old Shire Hall was also open. On the Sunday we had the Old Shire Hall open again and a bus ran between the venues to Overnewton Castle.

In the evening we had our grand dinner at Overnewton Castle and this was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the people who attended. All in all we did a 'mighty job' and all of the work we should be proud of.
Monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, in the Keilor offices of the Brimbank City Council, Old Calder Highway, Keilor Village at 7pm.

The aim of the KHS is to promote the history of the region. During the past twenty years we have been involved with many varied projects and assignments. We have set up an heritage walk with panels, recording the history and importance of the selected sites and buildings. A video and two books have been produced to record the history of this area.
