Oral Histories

Collage of oral histories interviewees
Faces of interviewees for our oral history project

Experience Campbelltown's bygone years through recordings of local residents as they reminisce about early Campbelltown, at a time when Queen Street was just a dirt road.

Featuring interviews by Local Studies Librarian, Andrew Allen, these oral histories record stories of personal and family connections with prominent people from Campbelltown's past. They also cover social trends and highlight times during The Depression and war years and what Campbelltown was like before and after electricity.

New interviews recently added include residents Fatin Al Rawi, Sikander Khan and Maluach who tell their stories of coming to Campbelltown from other countries.
