Preserving the past is our future

We were established in 1998 to preserve and develop the history of our local area by researching and recording the stories of the people who have lived here, the events that have taken place, when, where and how they occurred, and especially why.


Our society in action​

Our volunteers provide the community with information on our local history, help with researching local families’ history, as well as further research conducted from Local, State and Federal Government archives.

Our society also acts as a repository for local organisations by accepting their archives and storing them in our archive room where they are available for the community to research. To view our archives, please book in to visit us on the first Saturday of the month from 2-4pm (except January) here. If you would like to visit us outside our opening times, please send us an email to book in with one of our volunteers. 

We meet in the old Chermside State School building in the Chermside Historical Precinct – 61 Kittyhawk Drive, Chermside. Monthly member meetings are held on the first Sunday of the month (except January) at 2pm. Our committee meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month. 

Your local stories

We would love you to share your local stories, family history and documentary material with us to include in our archives. If you would like to share your history, please email us at Together, we can continue to tell Chermside and our district’s amazing stories for future generations.


We always welcome new members
