Monthly news from the Enoggera & Districts Historical Society Inc

At the end of April we were saddened by the passing of our life member, Olive Barlow who lived in the Enoggera area for most of her ninety-plus years. 

Along with her dedication to the Guide movement, Olive was an active member of EDHS almost since its inception. Great changes occurred during Olive’s lifetime and she kept abreast with all of them. A meticulous record keeper she was the personification of an era past without ever losing sight of the present.  

May began for us with an appearance at BCC Marchant Ward’s annual Lanham Park fair on May 4.  We have attended this event for almost as long as it was first introduced in the early 2000s and regard it as an enjoyable event not to be missed. We thank the organising committee for allowing us to take part.  

The society’s historical photographic and manuscript collection is yours to inspect and use for research each Thursday between 9am and 1pm or at other times by arrangement. Community groups wishing to visit us should ring the number below or refer to our website or Facebook page.

EDHS provides guest speakers and gladly attends school, church and other fetes. Visitors and new members are always welcome at our library in Enoggera Memorial Hall, Trundle Street which has welcomed generations of residents of Enoggera and districts through depression war and continual social change for a century.  For further information phone Dave on 3366 3191 or email dlivett@optusnet.com au
