Trentham and District Historical Society aims to research the history of Trentham and district and to make this information public through meetings, publications and displays. General meetings with a speaker or an event, are held at the Bowling Club at 8 pm every second month, and are open to the public as well as to members.
We welcome enquiries about family or local history, which should be made by contacting the Research Officer. The cost of this service is either a small monetary donation, or the contribution of additional information to the society.
