The Society is currently working on a project to build a monument in the old railway yard at St Marys to honour the convicts who built the St Marys Pass from 1843 to 1846. THis project is still very much in the planning stage, but we hope to have a concrete plan in place in the next couple of months.
Members of the Society
are available by appointment to conduct tours and do talks on the
rich history of the Fingal Valley.
