MEMBERS of the Eacham Historical Society have completed the mammoth task of moving hundreds of years’ of history to the group’s new premises at 33 James Street, Malanda. 

As the society’s history collection continues to grow, it was forced to vacate its old home in Millaa Millaa. With the move now complete, volunteers are eager to begin sorting and recording the history of the Atherton Tablelands. Society president Daniel Donoghue said the organisation had become an invaluable source of information for anyone searching for documents, photos or even first-hand accounts of Tablelands history. 

“We are happy to assist people searching for history links - the society has a searchable archive of records pertaining to many aspects of the early Tablelands,” he said. “We have many family history documents and first-hand writings of interesting events from the past and our school student registers also assist greatly with family research. “Family history research seeking information and photographs relating to past residents have become a popular past-time which our volunteers are happy to assist with.” 

The society is open Monday afternoons, Tuesday nights and Thursday mornings along with separate appointment times to suit. 

Email or phone the society at eachamhistorical@live.com.au or on 4096 6239 if you require any assistance or would like to become a member.
