Did you know that the City of South Perth has a Historical Society?
Established as a not-for-profit in 1989, the South Perth Historical Society is a group of history buffs who are very dedicated to the history of South Perth and have made it their mission “to stimulate public interest in our local history, to encourage historical research and publication, and to promote the designation and preservation of historic sites, buildings and stories.”
The Historic Society is involved in a number of community ventures promoting history in our local area, and the group runs regular talks and workshops with interesting guest speakers throughout the year.
Membership to the Society is open to the public and they invite anyone with a keen interest in sharing and preserving local history to join.
