The Mt Dandenong & District Historical Society Inc. encourages and facilitates the collection, research, documentation and dissemination of images, written and oral records and objects representing the history and stories of Mt Dandenong and the surrounding districts of Kalorama, Olinda, Sassafras, Ferny Creek and Tremont. The collection will be developed as an historical and educational resource for the community.
