It is a fine example of a local history museum, well housed in premises attached to the Hunters Hill Town Hall, with objects displayed mainly in glass cabinets. The archives section is unfortunately very small, comprising shelving and steel filing cabinets. Files are kept in archive boxes, on book shelves and in the standard office type filing cabinets. The collection (material objects and ephemera) reflects aspects of local community life and environment. Hunters Hill, sometimes referred to as the “French Village”, is a garden suburb of Sydney, where Lane Cove and Parramatta Rivers form a significant part of the natural environment. The built environment, is predominantly made up of single family dwellings. A significant number of these are sandstone buildings from the second half of the 19th century showing the influence of the French developers of that time and the Italian stonemasons and builders who worked and lived in the area.
