So … What do we get up to at the El Arish History Station?
The El Arish History Station Museum is housed in the old Railway Station on Chauvel Street, El Arish. It contains a collection of the town’s documentary history and operates under the auspices of the El Arish Community Sports and Recreational Association Inc.
The History Station is where a dedicated Marie Carmen and her band of volunteers do the serious stuff of archiving and researching the history and culture of our ancestors and what has shaped our unique community. The outstanding job done each year for our ANZAC Day march and morning tea at the historical El Arish Hall can also largely be attributed to their efforts.
The History Station is an intimate venue making it the perfect place for small functions. It has hosted 5 weddings and a wake in recent times.
The History Station is unmanned most days as it is run by volunteers but contact Marie Carmen on 0438 288 412 or email and if it is possible she will be happy to open it up for you to see our excellent collection of memorabilia.
Great Morning Teas each Friday at 9.30 am with scrumptious freshly baked goodies from the Ladies all with a bit of history thrown in.
Come and join us! All welcome. Being totally self-funded, coin donations towards our fund raising is always appreciated at these events.
The History Station has hosted a number of Events and is the perfect venue for a small wedding, seminars, workshops and the like.
