Local history's local histories

Here is a sample of local histories for you to read, use in your research or prompt you to put your own research into print, and all from the local region.

There are a few histories of Batlow, focussing on different aspects of the town. I have chosen two :

Batlow : the growing years from gold to apples, compiled by the Batlow Historical Society.

A general history of the town and surrounding district.

Famous for flavour : 75 years of co-operation in Batlow by Sherry Morris.

A detailed study of the Batlow Fruit Co-Operative on their 75th anniversary of operation.

Grong Grong : the spirit of a small town, compiled by the Grong Grong History Committee. A general history with information drawn from oral histories, newspapers and more.

Wowsers, bowsers & peppercorn trees: a collection of history from Ariah Park and district compiled by Nigel Judd.

The history of Ariah Park town and the surrounding area, includes some family histories, stories about local characters, and church histories.

There are many more local histories to discover in the Wagga Wagga City Library collections, whether you are looking for a specific area or just want to browse the collection.
