Glen Eira Historical Society Caulfield South, Victoria

Glen Eira Historical Society was formed in 1972 as the Caulfield Historical Society to collect preserve and promote understanding of the history of the municipality. Our name was updated to Glen Eira following the changes made to council boundaries in 1994. We cover the suburbs within the City of Glen Eira.

Over the years we have developed an extensive collection of material and welcome donations of information, photographs and memorabilia related to the history of the area and it's residents. We also run a program of speakers at our bi-monthly General Meetings; and publish a Newsletter periodically.

Visitors and new members welcome.

I am concerned about the property called Roseneath circa 1874 which sits beside a side road of Nepean Hwy just down from the Glenhuntly Rd intersection. It was sold by Buxton early this year with the usual rectangle indicating its land size. Another ' development' ? Surely a house of this age should be preserved for the community? Does the historical society have any opinion of this? Thanking you for your time

Barbara Hoad 9 December 2016 4:21 PM

Roseneath has a local heritage overlay and the Glen Eira Historical Society wishes to see this 1870s building retained. I have not had a chance to look at the planning permit but understand the new owners wish to turn it into a childcare centre. I suggest you look on the Glen Eira Council website for details of the planning application and contact council if you are concerned. We will also be speaking with the Planner about this. At the time it was advertised for sale we did in fact suggest to a couple of Councillors they could buy it as a home for the historical society. Regards, Barbara

Hi, I live at 33 Cromwell St. I was wondering if you had any pictures of the Cnr of Cromwell and Rowena Sts in the 1980s and 1920s

I'm an old girl of O'Neill College Elsternwick (1961-1965) and like so many of my old school mates, are anxious to know more and more about our old school days.

karen Black 18 February 2018 9:53 PM

my G Grandfather, (Charles Brentwood), founded a club in Elsternwick, does any body have any photos of him/and or the club. it would be much appreciated.

Jenna Farrelly 31 May 2018 7:32 PM

Hi, this is a long shot but my Grandfather Mick (Ian) Roberts (born 1928) grew up in Carnegie and I am trying to find out more about the house he grew up in. Grandad would say that he grew up in an old hospital in Carnegie which was supposably haunted. They would let his sisters boyfriends stay in a certain spooky room and see if they stayed the night. Has anyone heard of a building which might fit this description? Regards Jenna. F
