Glen Huntly Tram Depot: 100 years
Read about the history of the Glen Huntly Depot in the September issue of The Bellcord, the newsletter of the Melbourne Tram Museum.
Founded in 1972 the Caulfield Historical Society’s early work led to significant buildings such as Myoora, Halstead and Lirrewa gaining heritage protection at a time when many historic buildings were under threat of demolition.
In 1994, the City of Caulfield merged with the northern part of the City of Moorabbin and became the new City of Glen Eira. Some years later the Caulfield Historical Society changed its name to the Glen Eira Historical Society, to reflect the whole municipality of Glen Eira. View Map
