Bendigo Historical Society Inc.
The aim of the Bendigo Historical Society Inc. is to encourage and facilitate the study of the history of Bendigo and district.
The Society acquires, researches, preserves, conserves, interprets and exhibits material which illustrates this history.
The Bendigo Historical Society Inc. is a voluntary non-profit Incorporated Association that began in November 1958.
The BHS owns a heritage collection of more than 45,000 items that is currently stored at the Bendigo Regional Archive Centre in Nolan Street, Bendigo.
The Society is run by volunteers who are responsible for managing and preserving the collection for future generations. Governance is by an elected committee.
Services We Offer
The Society holds a culturally and historically significant collection of books, documents, photographs, artworks, textiles and objects. Many of the photographs and documents are irreplaceable.
Access to the Collection storage facility in Nolan Street is by appointment to make donations of items to the collection and for assistance with research requests.
The volunteers at Nolan Street are progressively cataloguing the collection and entering the data onto Collections Management and Archiving Software.
We have a Research officer based at Nolan Street who answers research queries.
There is an initial charge of $10.00 for research services.
