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.

Tuesday 26th March 2019: A fun and informative evening with LCHS members presenting their very own ‘Show & Tell’. A variety of topics were presented which included: a snapshot of life on Nauru in the 70’s and the daring, bold and brilliant heroics of a women who dared to stand up to Ned Kelly! We saw a photograph printed on glass, an exercise book retrieved from the Willoughby tip belonging to Florence E Holloway dated Nov 7th 1893 and a photo book sent from Jordan during WW2. We also heard about famous relatives and the prospect of relatives being discovered in the near future. What an evening!! Thank you to all the wonderful speakers.
