About

The Historical Society of the Muncipality of Sorell is a not-for-profit incorporated association with an active volunteer committee.

Since 1993 we have been collecting and recording stories, photographs and artefacts that tell the story of the Sorell district of south east Tasmania – from Orielton to Marion Bay, from Nugent to Primrose Sands and of course the townships of Sorell, Dodges Ferry, Dunalley and others. We publish the Pitt Water Chronicles, our journal of local history articles and memoirs, we host events from time to time,  run a Facebook page and the very popular Sorell History Society Facebook group.

New members are very welcome (just $10 annual subscription). Come along to a monthly meeting or phone Graeme Evans on 0418 462 591 or Peta Kelly on 0437 588 848 if you have a question or would like to take a look through the many photos, records and artefacts at our History Room at Sorell Memorial Hall. Important items from our collection are on the eHive online catalogue.
