North Shore Historical Society


For the safety of members, the June 2020 meeting has been cancelled.

As the government restrictions on movement begin to ease, the Committee will consider suitable timing for resuming some Society activities over coming months. In doing so, we will work with Stanton Library, and relevant others, to ensure that any activities we do undertake occur in a safe and appropriately ‘socially-distanced’ manner.


Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month.

About the North Shore Historical Society

The Society, founded in 1958, aims to promote both public knowledge of and research into local history, including the way in which the histories of the City of Sydney and the NSW State have impacted on the development of the North Shore.

The Society accomplishes its objectives through regular monthly meetings, visits to historical sites, and walks exploring regional history. It also financially supports History Prizes for local school students.

The Society assists Council in many matters including the provision of plaques at historical sites.

The Society's archives and research files are available in the Heritage Centre (Stanton Library), plus advice and support can be sourced from others with particular interests or expertise, or you can view pages from the Historical Society journals online.
