Stories connect us to our local heritage. March is Women’s History Month. During our first excursion of the year, we will recognise the contributions of some local women to our community. Nestled on high ground, once overlooking the village of Eltham we will tour the Eltham Cemetery and share stories of women now interred in these grounds. From pioneer women to the first woman in Eltham to attend University. From the silent film actress to the community spirited politician. From the post mistress to the World War One nurse.
This free excursion is open to the general public as well as members and friends of the Society. Dogs are not permitted. Enter the car park from Metery Road, Eltham, follow signs for parking
and note this walk is on uneven ground in places. Please meet at the rotunda near the lake, for 2.00 pm start on Saturday 5 March 2022, 2.00pm – 3.30pm. Bookings are not necessary and
any COVID requirements will be in place.
The Eltham District Historical Society appreciates the support we receive from the Eltham Cemetery Trust, including being able to undertake our heritage excursions within the well
maintained, attractive grounds of their cemetery.
