Historique

In 1968 an earthquake at Meckering, 40 kilometres from York, shook many historic buildings to the ground. As a result, a small group of determined citizens, recognizing the need to preserve the past and protect the surviving heritage buildings formed The York Society. Its principal aim was to revive, restore and cherish the history and architecture of this small and unique Australian country town.

The York Society manages the York Research and Archival Centre containing a large collection of published and documented material.

Contexte géographique et culturel

York is the oldest inland town in Western Australia, situated 97 kilometres east of Perth, and is the seat of the Shire of York.
