Published in 2007 by the

Kilmore Historical Society


This book of 254 pages is a collection of reminiscences of Kilmore which give a first hand account of life in Kilmore from the 1840s through to the 1960s. It has over 140 photographs & illustrations, many of them previously unpublished and two comprehensive indexes;

a surname and a general index.


Through the words of those who were there, you will relive the horror that was "Black Thursday" and experience the fear of murderous bushrangers; be amazed at the passion aroused by the local elections; meet and admire the community spirited men and women that formed the institutions in Kilmore and shaped this community; be delighted in tales of a carefree, simple childhood and journey through the streets of Kilmore during the 19th century.

as "Old Kil-more".
