Highlights of the Museum.
The Museum has a rich collection of artefacts which range in date from pre-European settlement to the modern day. The museum also houses an extensive collection of documents, microfilms and photographs. Many of these objects tell personal stories about people's lives, places and artefacts. The range of objects in this exhibition, selected and curated by the collection team, reflects the wide range of interests of our volunteers. The objects on display all tell a fascinating story and include:
  • A ball gown that Mrs Grace McVey wore when she met Queen Elizabeth 11 in 1954.
  • A camera used by a missionary in Mongolia and Nepal in the early 1900's.
  • An early sewing machine brought out from Ireland in 1890.
  • An excerise book used by an 11 year old school boy in 1861.

The Historical Society held its inaugural meeting in June 1970 and we would very much like to hear your memories of this time and your ideas on how we can celebrate this important milestone next year.
