Kalamunda & Districts Historical Society is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary this year. In the 1921 Post Office, there is a comprehensive display of work completed by volunteers over the years, repairing and renovating buildings, as the Kalamunda History Village grew from a solitary railway station in 1969 to the Village of fourteen buildings today. A walk around the village will take you back in time beginning with McCullagh Cottage of 1898 to the modern Memorial Building celebrating the life of pioneer families, their occupations and a display of their vehicles. The timber industry was important in the growth of Kalamunda with displays around the Village reflecting this during the Festival.
Maps and information will aid visitors understand how 50years of KDHS has reflected the growth of Kalamunda town site and the timber industry.
Also, during the school holidays and weekends there will be special activities for children to enjoy exploring the Village.
