Our own History
Formerly the Drouin Branch of the Warragul & District Historical Society Inc. since approx. 1997.
Background: At a public meeting held on 6 August 2015 at the Drouin Library, the Drouin History Group was formed and a Committee elected. This is the third historical organisation for Drouin and surrounding districts.
The first was the Buln Buln Shire Central Historical Committee which was formed on 8 June 1951. That group lapsed after its final meeting on 24 November 1954.
The second was the Shire of Buln Buln Historical Society formed on 21 November 1978 and lapsed early 1990’s.
In 1997 the Drouin historical collection, which had been stored at the Drouin Library for several years, went under the care of the Warragul & District Historical Society Inc. as the ‘Drouin Branch’.
Now in October 2018, after renovations to the Library, the Drouin History Group have moved into a larger room with better lighting, window coverings and power supply, more suitable to the requirements for preservation and cataloguing of the collection.
