Golden Anniversary Celebrations - we celebrated this milestone on Sunday 18th October.  Approximately 60 friends and interested people witnessed the launch of our new book "50 Years of Collecting" which was compiled by our secretary Helen Stevens, with help from other members.  Our newest publication was launched by Mr Athol Kelly, grandson of Mr JH Kelly, the original blacksmith and political father of Pyramid Hill.  Following the launch Athol told some of his family "Kelly Gang" yarns which caused much amusement.

- a book celebrating our history and our collection, with many memorable colour photos.  Collecting spans from when the Stations commenced in the 1840's including when selectors came in the 1870's to the present day.  We are grateful to those first members who started this valuable and fascinating collection before it was lost forever.

The Pyramid Hill Historical Society was formed in 1965 and since then has undertaken the enormous task of collecting, documenting and cataloguing over 6000 historically significant items.......see our Collections page for more details.

Check out our Publications page for a list of Books and DVD's available for order.

The main building was opened in 1970 by Sir Rohan Delacombe. 
The local granite foundation stone, donated by Athol Kelly, was
unveiled by Mr Gordon McKay MM.

The main building houses household memorabilia and hotographs, 
some family histories and records which are available for research.   
The annexe has displays of demi-johns and bottles, buckles, farm tools, and electrical equipment. The relocated RSL hall houses war memorabilia including photographs and Honour Boards from Pyramid Hill and surrounding districts.

Today's news is tomorrow's history and our volunteers are committed to the preservation of the collections and encourages both local folk and visitors to catch a glimpse of the early life of Pyramid Hill and district.
