WHO ARE WE?
In 1998, the Lilydale Progress Association felt there was a need
for a history group to represent the wider region of the Lilydale
Municipality. Thus eventuated the Lilydale History Forum, which
changed its name to become known as the Lilydale History Group.
Interested in the history of Lilydale or surrounding areas?
The Lilydale History Group meets from 7.30 pm on the 3rd Friday
of May and August, and from 8pm in November and February, at the
Old Courthouse, Lilydale. In months in which we don't meet we
have informal group days or evenings (check the Lilydale Progressive
for dates and times) where members of the public are most welcome
to attend and discuss local history. Non-members are welcome to
attend to discuss any aspects of the history of the district.
We have access to many resources on local history and e-mail
enquiries are encouraged.
Have you any Photos of Lilydale?
We have a growing archive of Photographic material depicting Lilydale
and surrounding areas. If you would like to add to our collection
please contact us so arrangements can be made to duplicate your
Written Material & Artefacts?
Do you have letters, postcards, posters, family histories,
diaries, log books, maps, books, newspaper articles, documents,
mementos of family, agricultural or military life? We would love
to hear from you.
