St Andrews/Queenstown Historical Society was formed in 1998 after the 140th birthday celebration of the St Andrews Primary School. At this time the school produced a history book on the district named "St Andrews: A Village Built on Gold". A group of dedicated people in the community were inspired to start the Society, as we love the area and it's fascinating past. Our group operates under the auspices of the St Andrews Primary School Council, to whom we are very grateful.
