Kenmore and District Historical Society Incorporated
The Kenmore & District Historical Society Inc was formed through a Steering Committee with Pat Dryden as convenor late in 2013. Sue Turner, Brian Becconsall, Sue Deal and Fryi Fahir were involved in that early stage.
The Society aims to research, promote and enjoy the history of the Kenmore district, including the suburbs of Kenmore, Kenmore Hills, Chapel Hill, Fig Tree Pocket and Pullenvale.
A Management Committee was formed early in 2014 and first met in February. Pat Dryden became President; Penny Cook, Secretary; Suzanne Hanson, Treasurer; Sue Deal and Lola Priddle, members. The Society became officially incorporated in May 2014. At September 2014 there are 40 members of the Society, many of them having lived in the Kenmore district for many decades. There are also younger people who have a keen interest in understanding the continuity of the community in which they live.
Resource Location and Arrangements
The Kenmore and District Historical Society (KDHS) has a collection of resources covering a broad range of themes on Kenmore and district. The RSL have generously allowed KDHS to store these valuable resources, as well as a computer, in the Research Room located in the RSL rooms at the Fairview Aged Care Facility, Pinjarra Hills. The room is a place where students are encouraged by the RSL to research from the RSL’s collection, and where members of KDHS and the public can utilise the society’s resources and research material.
Please note that the KDHS collection can be viewed by appointment only. If any members wish to view our records please contact the Secretary, Peter Nimmo at firstname.lastname@example.org
