Royal Historical Society of Victoria
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria (RHSV) was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities such as lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions for the benefit of members and the general public.
Regular events each year include Melbourne Day, History Week, the New Historians Evening, the Royal Society joint Lecture and the Victorian Community History Awards. We organise a biannual conference and have a key note speaker delivering the Augustus Woskel lecture.
RHSV HEADQUARTERS: DRILL HALL
The Australian Army Medical Corps Drill Hall was built between 1938 and 1939.
It is located on the corner of A'Beckett and William Streets, Melbourne, opposite Flagstaff Gardens. The principal entrance is in A'Beckett Street. The original offices are the administrative unit of the Society and the hall itself was divided to provide a reception area, exhibition space and library. The mezzanine is used as a work and training area. The Officers' Mess, with its entrance in William Street, is used for meetings, lectures and seminars.
