Cleaning, preservation and maintenance

One of the primary goals of the Museum is to provide for long-term preservation and interpretation of the symbols of our rural heritage. Unique among these “symbols” are the ten historic buildings and numerous outbuildings that house many of the Museum’s collections.


We are excited to be implementing the “Adopt-A-Building” Program which allows for

businesses and private individuals to help us maintain the future of

these historic structures.  


The Museum’s pioneer village comprises vintage 19th and 20th century structures that range from the 1897 St Mark's Presbyterian Church from Kooroongarra to the 1901 School which served Millmerran, Fernleigh and Bringalily.  Other buildings spread throughout the village include the Lavelle Hall with its treasure trove of memorabilia, the Ron Houston Collection, Water Baby Exhibit, Engine Room, Kooroongarra Post Office, Shepherds Hut, Cream Shed, Shearing Shed, The Blacksmiths,  and the main building which was once the Millmerran Shire Council offices.  

While each of these buildings serve as a present-day nostalgic reminder of a less-complicated past, you can help us ensure that they are preserved so that future generations can celebrate Millmerran’s past as well as appreciate the challenges and pleasures of rural life as represented in our pioneer village.  

Your financial support, or your support-in-kind (cleaning, preservation of items, etc.) will ensure that the epic story of Millmerran’s forbearers resonates today and into the future with all who visit our wonderful museum.




  • The business community and/or individuals are invited to nominate a building or buildings they would like their donation to be associated with. Alternatively, their contribution would be spread across all buildings and their contents as needed.

  • When you contribute to our Adopt-A-Building Program, your donation will be used solely for the cleaning, preservation and maintenance of the building and its contents.


  • As we are a registered not-for-profit organisation, your financial donation is tax deductible.


  • Donations will be payable to the Millmerran & District Historical Society Inc. in a special Program account to be used specifically for the purpose. Accounts are audited yearly, with full reporting made publicly accessible. 

  • Pledges are reviewed on a year-to-year basis.  ​However, if a long-term commitment to fund a particular building is received, a Plaque would be placed on the building to reflect this. 


SPONSORSHIP LEVEL 1 - $1,000 or more per year
