Rosalie Shire Historical Society

The Museum consists of two large corrugated iron sheds. Displayed in these we have heavy agricultural machinery, farming equipment and other large and smaller items relating to a dairying district. Despite this the museum is not crowded. Also displayed, in glass cabinets we have crockery, glassware, bric-a-brac, sewing articles and three rooms depicting the 1930's - 1940's style of living. Our small items and photo room contains many records, fabrics and various documents. We have a great collection of transcripts of taped interviews with long time residents of Rosalie Shire. We have compiled and printed two books in a series of "How It Was". The first book is titled "Carriers Mailmen and Bush Telegraph" (The story of Cream Carters of Goombungee) The second book "Pioneers in Petticoats" tells the life story of pioneer women of the Rosalie Shire. A second book of "Pioneers in Petticoats" will be launched in November.
