Broadford and District Historical Society is marking History Month in Victoria during October by hosting several activities.

The society has begun presenting a virtual walk around town each day via its Facebook group ‘Broadford Historical.vic’.

Society member Marg Inness said the daily updates would take people on a journey throughout the town, giving a brief history and background information on buildings and places.

“It follows last year’s extremely popular presentation of Broadford Families of Yesteryear,” she said.

“Every day there will be a new post, or people can go to the page and scroll back and read previous posts and comments.”

The society also provided a display for Broadford Secondary College’s 60th anniversary celebrations on Saturday.

Historical items such as uniforms, speech night programs and much more were available for returning students and staff to view while reconnecting to past years and observing the evolution of the Broadford Higher Elementary, Broadford High and Broadford Secondary College.

Ms Inness said the society would also host a monster book sale each Wednesday during October, from 10am to 2.30pm, at the historical precinct.

“Most books are $2 and under, with a raffle and Devonshire tea available for $5 too,” she said.
