The Ballina & District Historical Society Inc. was established in May 2019 by a group of enthusiastic locals whose aim is to preserve and document the social and cultural history of Ballina and it's surrounding districts including Pimlico, Wardell, Meerschaum Vale, Empire Vale, Teven, Lennox Head and Tintenbar.
Our objective is to identify, collect, index and preserve local historical material such as documents, photographs, maps and artefacts with a view to establishing a Ballina & District Heritage Museum.
We are happy to announce that after a successful submission to council, the heritage (1937) Pimlico Hall has been offered in December 2019 to the society for use as a museum. We anticipate the museum will be up and running in 2020.
The inaugural committee for 2019/2020 are:
President: Allan Hicks
Executive Secretary: Ann Mulder
Minutes Secretary: Yvonne Randle
Treasurer: Brian Mullens
Public Officer: Patricia Wilson
Media Officer: Debbie Carter
Patron: David Wright (Mayor of Ballina)
