This newly published book of 254 pages is a collection of reminiscences of Kilmore which give a first hand account of life in Kilmore from the 1840s through to the 1960s. It has over 140 photographs and illustration, many of them previously unpublished, maps, bibliography, footnotes and two indexes.

Through the words of those who were there you will relive the horror that was "Black Thursday" and experience the fear of murderous bushrangers; be amazed at the passion aroused by the local elections; meet and admire the community spirited men and women that formed the institutions in Kilmore and shaped this community; be delighted in tales of a carefree, simple childhood and journey through the streets of Kilmore during the 19th century.

Discover a proud Kimore, whose old residences fondly recall as "Old Kil-more".
