Join MHS @’the Station’

Mansfield Historical Society was initially formed in the1960’s and after a few years  activity was suspended.  The Society was re-formed in 1983 and in 1992 moved into the old Library building in Ailsa Street. It then moved once more in 2006 to the Mansfield Railway Station, our current premises. 

You’ll find us at 175 High Street, at the Western entry to town – from Maroondah Hwy B320.

The Mansfield Historical Society is highly active with a wonderful core of volunteers who are involved in various activities such as the digitization of hundreds of our photographs, cataloguing our print material and clothing collection and staffing the Society premises for visitors. If you would like to donate an hour or a day to help out at the society any assistance would be appreciated.

We are always on the lookout for volunteers !
