The Museum is based around Shepparton's Public Hall- built in 1873, and now our oldest standing building - and it features a wide range of locally
From a 16th Century Baronial Chair to a 1929 Fire Engine , an 1860 wedding dress to a colonial four-poster bed and the restored clock from our 1882
Post Office - we are proud to display our City's history to you!
ABOUT US ...
Shepparton has long had an interest in its past.
The publication, in 1910, of Prosperous and Progressive Shepparton, was followed during the 1920's and 1930's by newspaper historical supplements.
And the Centenary of European Settlement, 1838 - 1938, saw a historical society formed, to assist in the writing of A History of Shepparton.
Our present Association was formed in 1962 as the Shepparton Historical Society. The founder , former Town Clerk Raymond West, had assembled a
City of Shepparton Historical Collection, and this formed the basis of our collection.
We first utilised the Mechanic's Institute as home, then were given tenancy of the Public Hall by Council in 1972.
Our success in developing a leading Museum is due to generous community support and donations.
