More About Us

 

 

 

The reformation of a history group in Craigieburn came about in 1998 when a large developer moved into the area.  Their community development officer contacted a local university student, Rebekah Jardine, who was studying Victorian colonial history about researching Craigieburn's history.

In asscociation with the State Library, Rebekah Jardine completed research into Craigieburn's history and the backbone behind the current history group being established.
