The Wonthaggi and District Historical Society had its beginning in the late 1950's when a number of interested citizens saw the need to preserve Wonthaggi's history. A public meeting was held and the historical society was formed. Over the ensuing years the collection of artifacts has grown, as has its collection of photographs and documents. The society has copies of most local newspapers, some dating back to 1910; audio tapes of many and varied speakers with their rich tapestry of experiences and observations.
