133 Macquarie St, Sydney, Sydney CBD, Sydney
History House was designed by the architect George Allen Mansfield as a fine city residence for his uncle George Oakes in 1871. It is now the home of the Royal Australian Historical Society which holds regular seminars and events open to public.
Members and guests are invited to visit History House, 133 Macquarie Street, Sydney in business hours from Monday to Friday. The Society hosts day and evening lecture series, workshops, open days, excursions, and functions in collaboration with Affiliates and others. Please review the calendar of events or contact us for more information. Furthermore, History House can also be hired for events.
For the first forty years of its existence, the Royal Australian Historical Society (RAHS) lived in rented premises, the longest tenancy being in the head office of the New South Wales Department of Education. In 1940 the Society purchased premises at 8 Young Street, Sydney and remained there until 1971 when the gracious Wickham House at 133 Macquarie Street, Sydney became the Society headquarters. The current History House, with old-world charm and well-proportioned Victorian era rooms, remains at this location.
