Sandringham & District Historical Society

Are you interested in using your research skills to help a local history society? The Sandringham & District Historical Society was started in 1986 by a group of like-minded, local history enthusiasts. With considerable community assistance, rooms were made available over a period of years for meetings and storage of our collected assets. Eventually the City of Sandringham (now the City of Bayside) allocated the Society a site of its own, between the library and the senior citizens' rooms in Sandringham.
