The Dublin History Group Research Centre is based in the historic Dublin Institute, on the corner of First and Sixth Street, the central hub of most social activities in the Dublin area since 1885.
The self funded Dublin History Group was first formed in July 1997 by four Dublin residents, who felt there was a great need to preserve the history of the area for future generations and while the remaining few older members of our community were still able to pass on their precious knowledge.
Today, the group has seven active members with many residents, both past and present donating photographs, historical knowledge and artifacts, money and time to help preserve the Hundred of Dublin’s History.
The Dublin History Group now reside in the Dublin Institute and have set-up the facility to enable the group’s work to continue and progress in compiling, storing, recording and preserving the history of the “Hundred of Dublin”. The official opening took place on Sunday 20 May 2012. The group also produces a free community newspaper the Dublin Dispatch.
Dublin is a small town on the main highway 70 km north of Adelaide, South Australia, under the jurisdiction of the Mallala District Council. Although the population is less than 200, the town services a number of other communities in the district, in particular, Thompson Beach, a popular weekend destination, Web Beach & Port Parham.
