Appeal Re History of Post Office

We would be keen to hear from anyone who is familiar with the history of the bluestone Post Office on Powlett Street. We are particularly keen to hear oral histories from those who worked or lived here. If you have photographs of the interior we would be delighted to see and copy them. Either contact us via Facebook or drop in on our opening night on 2 February.

Remember – the February meeting will be the AGM and the official opening of the new premises.

Setting Up our new premises

Kilmore Historical Society has been setting up our new premises at the Old Kilmore Post Office, 2 Powlett Street (next door to the Court House). Here are some photos of the arrangement of the new premises:

A whole room devoted to newspaper archives
Lots of natural light in our rather nice new office

-We have a museum! Are these girls asking one another “Why are we standing in a museum ?”
The research room. Fiche, CD’s, microfilm, and books will live here.
These old buildings tended to have large cupboards. They are very useful for printed records.
