The Historical Society
Since 1962, the LCHS has been researching the history and heritage of life on the North Shore. Its charter is also to collect and manage artefacts and memorabilia representing life in Lane Cove from the time of the Cameraygals, the Indigenous owners of the region, down through the subsequent two hundred and twenty odd years.
The LCHS encourages people to explore past events in Lane Cove and its environs:
to find out why people have settled in Lane Cove;
to consider the many challenges people have faced, both in the far and recent past in the area;
to consider the pleasures and excitements of living in Lane Cove;
to reflect on the many changes, social, institutional, and environmental that have occurred;
to preserve Lane Cove History in all its many facets;
to promote active research into Lane Cove and its development;
to celebrate interesting and inspiring persons, events and places in Lane Cove.
The LCHS also has the curatorship of Carisbrook Historic House and welcomes volunteers who feel they would like to contribute to the community in an interesting way by becoming a Friend of Carisbrook.
Friends of Carisbrook meet at 10am on the first Wednesday of every second month at Carisbrook Historic House. New members are very welcome, there are many ways that you can help and make a difference.
UP COMING EVENTS
AUGUST 11: Jazz, Wine & Cheese at Carisbrook
SEPTEMBER 15: The Great Lane Cove Photo-Scan
At the Podium Tuesday 28th May 2019 was an inspirational and informative evening. Norma Tracey, the ‘Emeritus Founder’ of Gunawirra, a not-for-profit organisation which exists to support young Aboriginal mothers, their infants and young children told many stories. We heard about the challenges faced on a daily basis but also of the triumphs faced over the years. Graham Toomey, CEO and Senior Cultural Manager of Gunawirra was present to welcome our gathering to Cameraygal Country.
"Great experience, the guide is very knowledgeable and friendly."
