Welcome to the Mosman Historical Society’s website. It provides information on both the Society itself and Mosman’s rich history.

Dalton (Jack) Carroll founded the Society in 1953. An incorporated community organisation, it promotes the history and heritage of Mosman as well as of Australia as a whole. It is an affiliate member of the Royal Australian Historical Society.

The Society's Speaker meetings are held on the SECOND WEDNESDAY in the months of March, May, July, September and November at 7pm in Mosman Library, 605 Military Road, Mosman 2088. Visitors welcome.

The website provides information on the Society's activities and events and how to become a member. It also includes links to a wide range of relevant history resources. Photographs presented on each page of the site are from the collection of the Mosman Library and are displayed with the approval of the Mosman Library. The Society wishes to thank the Library for the use of their photographs.
