The Willoughby District Historical Society(WDHS) Inc. was established in February 1974 to encourage the study and appreciation of the history of the Municipality of Willoughby.

The Willoughby local government area (LGA) is located on Sydney's Lower North Shore with the regional centre of Chatswood at its heart. Details of the Willoughby LGA (now the City of Willoughby) are provided on the Willoughby History & Heritage page.

Our mission is to research and conserve the rich tapestry of Willoughby's past. Our volunteers maintain local history records, study Willoughby's social, cultural and industrial history, organise exhibitions and tours so that others can understand and appreciate the community's past.

The Willoughby Museum is located in the 1913 Federation cottage, Boronia, located at 58 Johnson Street in Chatswood. It explores the economic, social and environmental history of Willoughby City through permanent and temporary exhibitions. Meetings featuring speakers on historical subjects are held at 2.00pm on the second Saturday of alternate months from February.
