About Us

The Society is run totally by volunteers. We rely on funds from membership fees, fundraising projects, sales of books and donations and grants. This assists in maintaining and developing the resource centre and museum. The resources that have been collected are quite comprehensive, with over 4000 photographs, information about many prominent local families. We hold an extensive library of local history books, a collection of historical maps, and an archive of many records. The focus is mainly on the farming and agricultural history of the region.

Currently the ‘Shed ‘is being renovated to display many of the tools.

There are also a number of members who have had long term connections to the history of the district and have been able to provide an excellent recall about people, places and events that have occurred. The items on display and the contents of the research archives are preserved for the use and enjoyment of the community and visitors.
