The Montville History Group has hit 2019 running.

In February, we put 2 stories up:

  • Glover Court – part of the Montville Place Names Series, and
  • Rations and Song – our 2018 story on Italian POWs in Montville published in Hinterland Times which generated such exciting follow-up

In March, we have posted 4 stories to date:

  • Pioneers, Landowners and Builders – the Bury Family
  • Manley Drive – Montville Place Names
  • Building a Community – the Farmer Family
  • Montville Firsts – a participatory chronology

  Manley Drive, Montville

In April, Hinterland Times will run a follow-up story to Rations and Song which we will then post.

Other stories planned for April/May include:

  • Mill Hill Road – Montville Place Names
  • First People Today – a living Culture
  • Sports Ground Stories – when entry was a shilling
  • Fig Tree – the history of the Manley residence
