The Merimbula-Imlay Historical Society is a non-profit organisation that maintains and manages the Old School Museum, which is housed in a beautiful heritage building dating from 1873. Originally built as a school with the master’s residence attached, and using locally quarried stone, it is one of few buildings of its type remaining in Australia today.

The Society is also responsible for an archive collection of written material, oral histories, photographs and maps. It acquires, conserves, researches and exhibits the history of Merimbula, Pambula and adjacent areas    for the purpose of education and enjoyment of both local residents and visitors.
