North Sydney Heritage Centre, Stanton Library help

The North Sydney Heritage Centre at Stanton Library is committed to documenting the social and cultural heritage of the local area, with a particular focus on the built environment. The Heritage Centre collects and makes available primary and secondary material for a wide range of historical research, including family history, house histories and heritage reports. It houses the David Earle Local Studies Collection, the Merle Coppell Oral History Collection, and a significant proportion of the North Sydney Council Archives. Some of this material is also available online via our Heritage Databases. Historical Services staff provide assistance with research, mount regular exhibitions, conduct public activities for History and Heritage Weeks and manage our local museums, Don Bank Museum and Sexton's Cottage.
