Historical information

Albert Price purchased a 31 acre block of the Montmorency subdivision. He subsequently became the first Councillor representing Montmorency within the Shire of Eltham. His name is remembered in the naming of Price Avenue, Montmorency. A memorial plaque was placed in the original Memorial Hall in Rattray Road in memory of Albert and Janet Price's commitment to the new suburb of Montmorency.
