Amiens History Association
Amiens History Association Inc.
The Amiens History Association Inc. is a volunteer based group in Queensland made up of historical enthusiasts, who have a specific interest in creating and developing the Amiens Legacy Centre and preserving the memory of the settlers who participated in the Pikedale Soldier Settlement Scheme in SE Qld following WWI.
The name, Amiens Legacy Centre, embodies the definition of 'legacy' that reads something that is a part of your history or that remains from an earlier time. The Amiens Legacy Centre is situated on what became the hub of the soldier settler community, the Amiens rail terminus. It is the aim of the Amiens History Association to reinstate this site as a focal point for the village of Amiens today and to tell the story of Amiens from pre-European settlement up to the present day.
The primary objectives of the Amiens History Association are:
To undertake research, promotion, education and other activities relevant to the Pikedale Soldiers’ Settlement in conjunction with the relevant authorities.
To raise funds to support these activities.
To undertake projects, including events that promote a greater interaction between the association and the community.
To effectively liaise with external stakeholder groups who are responsible for, have an interest in, or are affected by, the Pikedale soldiers’ settlement.
To encourage membership of the association and operate as a financially viable and professional organisation.
To assist with the care, maintenance and/or preservation of historical buildings in accordance with Burra Charter principles.
The Amiens History Association became an incorporated association under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 in May 2014. Our incorporation number is IA 41982.
Our ABN number is 37 781 294 655.
