The Society, founded in 1958, promotes both public knowledge 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.
It 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 at Stanton Library. Advice and support can be sourced from others with particular interests or expertise.
