Seymour and District Historical Society

Seymour and District Historical Society


The Seymour and District Historical Society was formed in 1964 after a committee had been created which assisted in the publication of the first written history of Seymour and surrounds, ‘New Crossing Place’ by H.G. Martindale


The Society’s aim is to:

  • Record and preserve the history of Seymour and surrounds
  • Encourage an interest in the history of our town
  • Collect and display items of significance to the area
  • Assist in historical research relating to people, places and events significant to our area
  • Preserve historic sites in Seymour and the surrounding district


The Society is located in the Free Public Library building (which was opened in 1875) on the corner of Edward and Tallarook Street


Hours: Open the first Sunday and third Tuesday of each month 1:00pm to 3:00pm (Excluding July and December)
