About us

The Coburg Historical Society is a voluntary association dedicated to preserving the history of Coburg. We welcome like-minded individuals to join us as members. The society was founded in 1972 on the initiative of the former Coburg City Council. The society has continued to protect, promote, and preserve the history of Coburg, including more recent history since the City of Coburg amalgamation into the City of Moreland in 1994.

In essence, the aims and objectives of the society are to promote and encourage the study of history pertaining to Coburg, to promote the compilation and collection of records relating to Coburg, and to collect and preserve items of historical interest.

Committee of Management

The society is governed by the Committee of Management. The committee is composed of volunteers from the membership ranks and is responsible for the day-to-day and strategic governance of the society and its Bluestone Cottage Museum. Committee members are elected annually at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and any financial member of the society is eligible to stand for election to the committee.

The committee meets regularly (usually 11 times per year) at the Coburg Library Meeting Room.
