Mitcham Village was surveyed in 1840, making it one of the oldest European settlements in South Australia. The local Council was formed in 1853, the rst outside the Adelaide CBD.
Formed in 1977 as a sub-group of Mitcham Village Arts and Crafts Association, the Society has already worked to achieve designation of Mitcham Village Historic Conservation Zone, appointment of a Local History Of cer and formation of the Mitcham Heritage Research Centre.
In 2007 a new chapter began, with separate incorporation and a new determination to protect and stimulate interest in local heritage.
Be part of a committed group keeping watch on Mitcham’s heritage, and participating in enjoyable talks, walks, tours and other events.
Memberships of the Mitcham Historical Society are open to all persons and organisations and the Membership Application Form can be downloaded here.
