The Mornington & District Historical Society Inc

The Mornington & District Historical Society was formed in 1964 with Leslie Moorhead as it’s first President.

Our Society manages the  Old Post Office Museum on the corner of Main Street and Esplanade, right opposite Mornington Park. The Museum houses the collection of memorabilia covering the history of Mornington, Mt. Eliza, Mt. Martha and Moorooduc.

We have photographs, maps, documents, clothing and other artefacts. Visitors will also see some interesting pieces of postal, telegraph and telephone items.
