About Us
Find out more about the Albany Historical Society.

Albany became the first settlement in Western Australia, known in its early days as Frederickstown, with the arrival of Major Edmund Lockyer with a contingent of convicts, soldiers, a surgeon and a storekeeper in the Brig Amity on Christmas Day, 1826.

Today Albany is a thriving regional centre and popular tourist destination, boasting many wonderful, well preserved buildings from earlier times; so well preserved in fact that they are still in use today.

Albany Historical Society is the proud custodian of Two of these treasures, maintaining them on a voluntary basis and inviting the public to come and visit our past.

Founded in 1962, Albany Historical Society is a non-profit organisation, affiliated with the Royal Western Australian Historical Society and staffed entirely by volunteers.
