As part of its ongoing conservation of this State significant building, the Royal Australian Historical Society is planning exciting new facilities at its home, History House, to ensure it remains part of our rich and diverse living heritage. Our building extensions will provide increased space to members, visitors and staff, improved disability access, provide for the urgent and necessary replacement of the building’s lift, and include space for digital media initiatives. As the refurbishment will take place at the rear of History House, it will not alter the magnificent visage of the front of our beautiful heritage building.
It is anticipated we will commence building works at the end of 2016 subject to Development Application approvals. During this period we will continue to deliver publications, online lectures, digital media resources, research services and excursions, as our staff will work from the ground floor.
We would like to thank all our members and friends for their continuing generous donations to support this initiative that is critical for the ongoing viability of the Society and its core goal – to promote Australian history and help people develop the skills required to produce quality history projects.
