|<< The Village Store
Originally located in Byron St., Inverell, this building was originally a Butcher's Shop built in 1911. Many of the original butchers shop fittings are still in place, such as the meat hanging racks. This building acts as the store for the Pioneer Village and people should make this their first place to call.
Tea, Coffee and biscuits, as well as a range of souvenirs, are available from the Village Store at all times.
The old Goonoowigall School is set as a typical historical school of its time. The school also houses the Tiles Of Time display.
|<< The Grove Homestead
The Grove Homestead would have to be considered as the original "kit home". The house was measured up, on site, on the property "Grove", just south of Tingha. The components for the house were then all cut to measure in Newcastle in 1841, before being loaded onto bullock wagons for the long trip north. Ironically the bullock wagons didn't reach the intended location of the home so the home was assembled where the wagons were bogged.
The house is set up as a typical home of that era and well worth browsing through.
|Nullamanna Church >>
This building is still used as a church and, is set up for that purpose. It is a very popular venue for weddings.
|<< Oakwood Memorial Hall
The hall contains all the original honour rolls from Oakwood. The hall is a fully functional centre and popular for wedding receptions and other functions. At the back of the hall is a quite modern but suitably designed barbecue area. The hall must be booked in advance for functions.
|Aberfoyle Telephone Exchange >>
A peak through the door of this building allows you to step back in time when telephone exchanges were manually operated and you got service from someone who was knowledgeable with the local area. You cannot enter the building but all the items are clearly visible from the doorway.
|<< Paddy's Pub
The old Paddy's Pub has been faithfully restored and set up as a typical old pub. Walk through the building and get the feel of what the old local pub must have been like in days gone by. The building is fully accessible.
|Shadwell Hills Kitchen >>
This building was moved in from the property Shadwell Hills and attached to the back of Paddy's Pub just as may have been in days gone by. Walk through this old kitchen and see how the people lived without refrigeration or electricity or other mod-cons that we take for granted today in our modern kitchen.
|<< Keera Blacksmith's Shop
Removed from Keera Station, near Bingara, and faithfully restored to its days of glory. This blacksmith shop is full equipped to allow you to see just the types of tools and equipment the old blacksmith worked with.
Taken from the community of Rob Roy and faithfully rebuilt on site, it now houses the Devine Photographic Museum as well as displays of old equipment (including old washing machines) as well as several other displays. Plenty here to occupy you for some time.
