Our History

 

The Kiewa Valley Historical Society began in 1965 when a group of like-minded people from all over the Kiewa Valley met with the idea of documenting and preserving the history of the valley.

As a result , the Kiewa Valley Historical Society Inc, (K.V.H.S) was formed and thus significant, both written and artefacts, were collected and saved for future generations.


Collections
The collection has many items that show the social history of how the First Peoples lived, then the settlers of the Kiewa Valley and Mount Beauty lived, worked and socialised. Collections feature photos, books, farming equipment, hospital equipment, technological equipment from the Kiewa Hydro Scheme, household items, plus oral histories, and genealogy records. Press the Useful Link to see our artefacts on Victorian Collections catelogue.  


Facilities
The historical society's museum is set up in the Mt Beauty Visitor Information Centre. The centre is wheelchair-friendly and features an accessible toilet as well as separate male & female toilets. Free parking is found on the north side of the information centre. There is also a small seating area in the sun deck of the centre. Mt Beauty Visitor Information Centre is within walking distance from main shopping strip, and approximately 50 - 60 minute drive from the larger centres of Wodonga / Albury.
