Summary: In the mid-1970s the Town of Cockburn grew concerned with preserving its heritage. In 1975 the first meeting of the Historical Society of Cockburn took place, and they became heavily involved in restoring the Azelia Ley Homestead and its outbuildings in Manning Park, and creating the historical displays housed inside. The homestead was officially opened as a museum in November 1983 by Mayor Don Miguel, and the Historical Society became caretakers in conjunction with the City of Cockburn.
