How It Came To Be....

When the Chapman Valley Shire considered demolishing the old 'Roads Board Building' in Nason there was a public outcry from residents.

In 1982, a meeting was called and over 100 people attended. It was from this meeting that the Chapman Valley Historical Society was formed.

The old building was saved by 'people power.' The society went into recess briefly in 1990, restarting with renewed vigour in 1995. When the society reconvened the group decided they wanted a museum. A farm shed was donated and farm machinery from throughout Chapman Valley was collected.

To increase the museums appeal the society decided to develop local history and photo wall displays. Today this ia a very impressive display, the historical society is the only community-based tourist attraction in the Chapman Valley. Visitor numbers are increasing yearly.
