Welcome to Moe & District Historical Society

Situated in the old Moe Court House, we are an indoor museum with in-house research facilities. The collection consists of items of local interest including an extensive photo collection, articles and small objects collection, all of which can be searched for on our catalogue.

On display are items of historic interest including domestic items, gold and coal mining items and early electricity generating instruments. Items displayed cover development of the surrounding district, social development as well as the industry and agricultural undertakings in the region - gold mining, timber milling, dairy farming, transport - both rail and road, coal mining and electricity generation. The collections also cover the wider areas of Yallourn and Walhalla.courthouse
