The Linton and District Historical Society was formed in 1981. As well as the town of Linton, the Society’s geographical area includes Springdallah, Pittong, Happy Valley, Mannibadar, Piggoreet, Golden Lake and Pitfield.
The Society’s objectives are to:
. foster historical interests and disseminate knowledge of Linton and district
. undertake and encourage historical research
. collect items of historical interest
. promote the preservation of items of historical interest
. raise funds for the fulfilment of the above
The Society occupies and has renovated two historic buildings in Linton – the old Nelson’s Undertakers building, now called The Letty Armstrong Resource Centre, where meetings are held and our collection is housed, and the 1874 Linton Free Library, which is used for special functions and displays. The Library has been nominated for the Victorian Heritage Register, because of its intact nineteenth century interior, which includes a large book collection that gives a fascinating picture of what readers in Linton once found interesting.
The Society has a collection of objects and papers relating to the history of Linton and the district, and in particular, it has an extensive historic photograph collection.
Some of the records we keep are: cemetery records, school enrolments (but only 1904 to 1934 have survived) and some Sunday School enrolments, town maps, lists of Anglican and Catholic marriages, hard copies of Grenville Standard newspapers 1895-1900, and odd records of Friendly Societies, rate payers’ lists, the Old Lintonians Association, etc. We also have a variety of memorabilia large and small.
Meetings are held on every second on the 3rd Monday of the month as follows,
at 7.30pm at the Letty Armstrong Resource Centre, 71 Sussex Street Linton. These mostly take the form of ‘History Nights’ where there is a presentation and discussion of a particular historical topic, perhaps involving a speaker or the showing of a DVD.
Resource Centre Opening Hours are
The second Sunday of each month (except January, July and August), 2-5pm.
We are always keen to have new members and the active interest and participation of our existing ones.
