The Society was formed in September 2000 by a small group of local residents of the Epsom and Mt Eden suburbs who want to promote interest and knowledge and record the history of their district.

Epsom and Mt Eden are significant areas in the early growth of Auckland city and have an interesting and diverse history.

We welcome new members who can add to, learn from, and contribute to the Society. We enjoy our work and hope you will too.


  1. The objects of the Society shall be to promote the study of NZ history with particular reference to discovering, preserving and disseminating information about the area centering on the two suburbs of Auckland known as 'Epsom' and 'Eden'.
