Eltham District Historical Society Inc Eltham, Victoria

EDHS encourages interest in the local history of the Eltham district predominantly within the Shire of Nillumbik in Melbourne's north. We collect, preserve and share local stories.

Activities include a regular program of heritage walks and meetings with guest speakers. We manage a significant collection and are active online sharing collection items and stories. We produce a bi-monthly informative newsletter (and welcome contributions).

The Local History Centre is in the former Police residence (1859) at 728 Main Road, Eltham (corner Brougham Street). This is located between the former Eltham Courthouse (1860) and the replica Eltham Police station, which can be visited by schools and organisations by arrangement.

General Meetings are held at the Eltham Senior Citizen’s Centre, Library Place, Eltham.

The Society was established in 1967 and celebrated it's 50th anniversary in 2017. It was the 2018 Nillumbik Community Group of the Year.

New members and visitors welcome.
