The Mapping Brisbane History Project, in its third and final stage to complete the MBH website, is looking to map in one year approximately 2,000+ heritage and lost sites of historical significance and described within 200 words each. The project is funded by the 2016-2017 Brisbane Community History Grants, from the Brisbane City Council’s Brisbane History Grants Program, auspice by the Coopers Plains Local History Group Inc., as a sponsoring member of the Brisbane Southside History Network.

A workshop to report the progress of the mapping project on the Brisbane Southside will be held as the BSHN meeting on Saturday 26 August 2017 at 13:00 at the Coopers Plains Library. All welcomed.

The project has had a short history of a few years. A pilot study was completed, in April 2014, of three local areas: Coopers Plains (Banoon)-Sunnybank, Moorooka-Tarragindi, and Fairfield-Annerley. It was funded to the amount of $6,800, from the 2012 Brisbane City Council Community History Grant. Further funding of $4,070 was provided in 2015 to compose thematic essays from the original research in the project (completed in June 2016).
