The Little River Historical Society Inc. was formed in 2003 with the objective of collecting, preserving and promoting the history and heritage of the Little River area.
The Society is presently establishing a collection of historical documents and images, which are available to the community for viewing and research. We also organise regular events, provide displays for community events, open days for members, guest speakers and monthly meetings which are open to anyone.
Attend a meeting
The Society currently holds a meeting once a month. These meetings are generally held at 7:30pm on a Tuesday evening in the Little River Mechanics Institute Hall, however there are often Sunday meetings and special events. New members and guests are welcomed.
For details of planned meetings and events, please ‘like’ our Facebook page or email us to be included on the email list.
