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 meets on the second Wednesday of March, May, July, September and November at 7pm in Mosman Library, 605 Military Road, Mosman 2088.
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.
Talk on David Samuel Anderson by Margarita Dowd on Wednesday 12 May 2021. See 'Activities & News' for further information.
If you have a personal connection with one of the plaques which adorn seats in Mosman public spaces, we would love to hear from you. Committee member, Perry McIntyre, is interested in the stories behind the plaques and her feature article in the newsletter is the result of her interest.
At a time of reflection about the British Royal Family, you might like to browse through a collection of Mosman photographs of the Royal Visit of 1954 which can be found on the Mosman Collective website.
