The MT ALBERT HISTORICAL SOCIETY is one of our most respected local organisations, with a mission to “protect, preserve and educate on all matters historical in and relating to Mt Albert”.
The society holds regular gatherings with guest speakers, local walking tours and visits to places of interest, and publishes regular newsletters focusing on heritage aspects. You can read them and find out more (including how to join the society) from the society’s website
The society’s most recent achievement has been the publication of Mt Albert Then and Now, written by historian Deborah Dunsford. It is a fine book, lavishly illustrated (available through the society website), and the following excerpts will give an idea of the depth of research and quality of the content
