The Society was established in 1968 as a volunteer group to preserve Melton’s history, and is now situated at The Willows homestead in the Historical Park, Melton. We have been involved in many community projects over the years, and now have the opportunity to create Melton’s first historical museum, also in the historical park, behind the Men’s Shed.
As well as collecting and researching historical items and cataloguing our vast collection of artefacts and photographs, we also open the Homestead to visitors every Sunday afternoon. Our volunteers give talks to schools and community groups as well as conducting group tours to the park.
Our new Museum, when finished, will house an extensive collection of local farm implements and machinery and will also showcase our history with horses. We welcome visitors to the Homestead and if you would like a tour during the week, feel free to contact us.
