Welcome to Our Website


 

 



The Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society have been involved, since 1947, in helping preserve the history of the greater Campbelltown area. We are one of the oldest, and most respected historical societies in Australia.

 

Our region, explored and settled by colonists in the early days of Australia's history, was officially declared "The District of Campbelltown and Airds" by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1820. With names taken from his wife Elizabeth's maiden name, "Campbell", and her family estate in Scotland, "Airds", the region became to a large extent the bread basket of early Sydney. Its' history of exploration, development, growth and expansion are part of the wealth of information we hope to provide you, our visitor with, on this website and others through the links provided within.

 

We are located in Glenalvon house, described by the National Trust as "exceptional". Classic Georgian Glenalvon, in its heritage gardens, is a Campbelltown landmark. The House is open 1st Monday, 2nd Saturday and 3rd Monday of every month, February to mid December, 10 am to 1.00 pm, and by appointment.

The links below, and others on this page, lead to further information, and topics of historical interest, enjoy exploring our site.
