The Hall Green Local History Society was founded in 1969 by a group of like-minded friends at South Birmingham College. Based in the South Birmingham district of Hall Green, the society has continued to attract people from the local area who have an interest in history and meeting people. We have at least eight guest speakers on our calendar each year covering a range of interesting subjects about the local area, Birmingham and Warwickshire.
In November 2019 the Society will be celebrating its 50 year anniversary.

Hall Green is located in South Birmingham about five miles from the City Centre. Originally called Hawe Green, it took its name from the medieval family whose moated hall stood at the junction of School Road and Fox Hollies Road near the green or common pasture.
Hall Green Local History Society regularly adds interesting articles about Hall Green and the surrounding area and what it was like to live and work here through history.
Whether you are interested in social history, architecture or business our monthly talks and articles have something for everyone.
Hall Green Local History Society members regularly share past and present images of Hall Green and the surrounding area.
Hall Green Local History Society looks forward to welcoming members and non-members to our monthly meetings held at Hall Green Baptist Church and the annual outing.
