Our story is that of one of the oldest Greek communities in Melbourne beginning with the earliest Ithacan arrivals of the mid nineteenth century.
The Ithacan Historical Society Inc (IHS) was founded in December 1990 by a group of members with a strong desire and commitment to preserve our history and heritage for future generations.
In addition to providing a valuable resource for research, our archives also provide a rich source of material for publications, exhibitions and retrospectives. Over time we envisage the collection being used for family history researchers and researchers and students interested in early Greek settlement in Melbourne and Victoria.
We are continually seeking to build our collection and of suitable items.
The IHS committee is dedicated to the preservation of the history of the Ithacans in Melbourne and Victoria and we welcome interested members to join us at our monthly meetings. Together we can ensure that the proud history of the Ithacan community and the Ithacan Philanthropic Society will not be lost to future generations.
