The Angaston & Penrice Historical Society (APHS) was established in 1997 with the vision to preserve, share and pass on knowledge of the captivating local history of Angaston & Penrice.
We have an active membership group that meets monthly. Our activities include staging exhibitions and events, maintaining our archives and collections, conducting Angaston heritage walks and answering family and local history queries.
Our organisation also oversees the operation of the heritage listed Angaston Blacksmith Shop & Museum located at 19 Murray Street. A passionate group of blacksmith volunteers demonstrate their skills on the forge on Saturdays, Sundays and some public holidays from 1-4pm. The Angaston History Centre is located next door at 21 Murray Street, where we have a research/meeting room and exhibition space.
