About the Henley & Grange Historical Society

The Henley & Grange Historical Society Inc. was formed in 1979 with the aim of recording and archiving the local history of Henley Beach, Grange, and also including parts of Fulham Gardens, Fulham, Tennyson, Henley South and West Beach.

Our Society holds four general meetings a year, with guest speakers covering a wide range of topics. In between meetings we arrange visits and tours of interest for our members.

Our work is entirely carried out by volunteers who join the Committee, edit our Journal, or work on archiving, displays and any other projects that are necessary.

The Society is keen to obtain photographs, artifacts, and family histories for our collection. Please contact us if you have anything of interest.

The ‘H&GHS Hut’ located in the ATCO building at the rear of the Henley Council Depot, 216-218 Military Road, Henley Beach is usually open between 10.00am – 12.00pm on THURSDAYS each week. Please phone 0403 502 201 to confirm before visiting.


Annual subscriptions for membership of the Henley & Grange Historical Society is currently $20 for individuals and $30 for family membership.

All members receive a copy of our annual Journal as part of their subscription.

For enquiries regarding membership, please contact the Society.

New members are always welcome.
