Welcome to the web site of Hornsby Shire Historical Society Inc.
The objectives of the Hornsby Shire Historical Society are:
To encourage the study of the history of Hornsby Shire, to foster an interest in the history of Hornsby Shire, to compile authentic records, and to collect, preserve and exhibit objects which have affected, and will continue to affect, the lifestyle and occupations of the residents of Hornsby Shire, both past and present.
Members' meetings, to which all interested local residents are welcome, are held at the museum (Joseph Colleridge Hall, Kenley Rd. Normanhurst), on the third Sunday of each month (except December), commencing at 2:00pm. The meetings include a short business meeting, followed by a guest speaker. A variety of historical subjects are covered throughout the year. Visitors are invited to stay for afternoon tea at the conclusion of the meeting.
The next meeting of the Society will be held at the Museum on Sunday 19th May 2019 at 2:00pm. Our guest speaker will be Graham Sims.
His topic will be: The day the Hawkesbury Ferries broke free of their moorings in 1978.
