WELCOME TO THE ALBURY & DISTRICT HISTORICAL WEBSITE
The mayor of Albury, Alderman Cleaver Bunton, called a meeting in the Town Hall (now MAMA) for Tuesday November 8, 1960 to form the Albury & District Historical Society. The Society was founded to play a part in the preservation of the history of the city and its surrounding district. Society Bulletin Number One records that the first papers to the Society were delivered at the December 1960 meeting by Mr Milton Mott speaking on “The History of Printing” and Mr Percy Burrows on “The Early Days of Albury.”
The Society maintains a program of meetings, research and publications, and cooperates and liaises with other institutions including the AlburyCity LibraryMuseum, and other regional historical societies and museums. A folk museum collection assembled by the Society was formally given to the City of Albury in 2003 and now forms the basis of the “Crossing Place” exhibition at the Albury LibraryMuseum.
Annual membership fees are due on 1 June each year. Please go to the Memberships page and print the Renewals/Application for Membership form.
