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.
Message from the President
Due to the recent escalation of the COVID-19 situation, the Hornsby Shire Historical Society regretfully informs the public that the Museum will not be open for our normal monthly meetings that are held on the third Sunday of the month. We will be reassessing the situation after May and will inform the public as soon as practicable. We are still available to answer any questions that the public may wish to post on our website.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.
