Broomehill Historical Society

A small brick building built in 1898, originally a hall then converted to a church, houses a miscellany of items of historic interest, particularly associated with Broomehill and its residents. Displays of copy prints of photographs of people, places, and events are featured. A large galvanised iron shed - previously a Shire Depot - containing a small quantity of unrestored agricultural equipment and vehicles is part of the museum.
