History House

History House

Located in the historic 1863 bluestone former Portland Town Hall, History House is home to some of the fascinating objects from the Glenelg Shire Councils Cultural Collection.

Core displays in the museum include stories of Sealers and Whalers, the arrival of the Henty Brothers, the establishment of a town and trading port and the arrival of immigrant ships in the 1850’s.

For anyone wanting information on family history or genealogical inquiries  the volunteers from the Portland Family History Group at History House will gladly assist you with your research.
