Who Are We
In 1983 the Sandgate and District Historical Society was formed by interested residents wanting to preserve the history of the Sandgate District.
In 1993 the Society purchased the building at 150 Rainbow Street Sandgate, which it still occupies. The name was then changed to The Sandgate and District Historical Society and Museum Inc.
The Society is a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to safeguard the community’s memories. These memories are made up of photographs, written histories, stories and an eclectic collection of objects.
The goal of the Society is to continually grow our collections and extend our research while at the same time promote interest within our community.
We conserve and display our collections for the purposes of study, education and enjoyment.
The Historical museum holds researched information on topics ranging from churches to sports, from local identities to colourful rogues, businesses, houses, entrepreneurs, cinemas and theatrical groups.
