Phone: (08) 9641 1765 The York Society represents the key issues of Heritage and History of York. It manages the York Research and Archival Centre containing a large collection of published and documented material.
Today, York's heritage buildings and streetscapes are acknowledged by the National Trust and the Australian Heritage Commission and the town is recognised as a Historic Town listed on the register of the National Estate.
In the last twenty years many of York's older homes and buildings, some dating from the 1850s and 1860s, have been restored by enthusiastic private owners. While the town has enjoyed a considerable modern expansion in recent years some of the heritage areas can still be seen as they were one hundred or more years ago.
Blandstown, for example, with its fine old buildings now beautifully restored after years of neglect, is an attractive example of an Australian colonial village.
