In 2014 the Historical Society of South Australia (HSSA) celebrated 40 years of discovering and promoting South Australian history. Over the decades, public awareness of our history and heritage has grown considerably. Major events, such as the State’s 150th in 1986, have contributed to this renewed interest. The marking of the centenary of the Anzac campaign (and World War I in general) has generated a new wave of interest and engaging many younger Australians who may not otherwise have any real interest in our past.

The HSSA’s 41st program of lecture meetings and other events is now nearing completion. Each year the Society presents 10 lectures which are free and everyone is welcome to attend. We strive, I think successfully, to present a varied range of topics delivered by speakers who are authorities in their particular fields of research. The program for 2016 will be posted here in the new year and I look forward to seeing both long-time supporters and new members at all of our events.

Do enjoy learning more about South Australia’s history through the Society.
