York Society Research and Archival Centre
The York Society Research and Archival Centre is a small but impactful historical group. The collection contains newspapers, maps, rate books and shire records, amongst other archival material. There is a small library of WA local history books where you can read about the interesting early settlement history of York, including the story of how an Aboriginal man assisted with identifying a better access road from Perth to York. The small group of volunteers can assist with historical research. Be sure to email through requests as the Centre is only open one day a week.
