Oatley Heritage and Historical Society

Where is this bubbler? -In 1940 the Oatley District Improvement Association asked Council to put it there. And the 1929 Map shows the developers wanted the vacant land which is now the Memorial Gardens.

 

 

 

 

 

The Oatley Heritage and Historical  Society researches Oatley History. It has quarterly meetings to report the current research. It also has three meetings a year for coffee and chat- these are informal meetings where members talk about local subjects.

The Society researches Oatley History and publishes its reports and other material on this site.

Next meeting is another Coffee and Chat session. This is our informal way of ensuring the stories of Oatley are not forgotten by sharing them with others. Come and share your stories and memories at the Oatley School of Arts (behind the library in Letitia Street) on Friday 27th   October (10.15am). People, places in Oatley and events are brought back to life by sharing them with others and we intend to record these conversations for our archives.

Now, to our next presentation. The talk will be the history of Oatley “Embankment Park” as it was once called. Come along and find out its new name and other names in between. Presented by Rodger Robertson  Date 24 November Oatley RSL     10.15am

Also visit us at our stall in the Oatley Lions Festival 21st October in the Memorial Gardens.

To join the Society just come along to a meeting- its $6 per year per family.

We would appreciate any material you may have to put on to this website or for the Society to hold.
