Stansbury Museum

Originally the school and the head teacher's residence, our Museum was built in 1878. Our history is well documented including many photographs in what was the school room. Parts of the residence have been established in a style similar to that of 1910. An interesting mix of displays including a comprehensive collection of shells and dolls, stylish ladies apparel from bygone days and implements used by the pioneers. Research and photographs are available for printing. The Stansbury Cemetery research is also available. Well signposted from both entrances to the town situated on the east coast of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.


The town is close to the Adelaide Brighton Cement quarry and its history is well documented. The agriculture of the district is provided along with the other previous and past industries that have supported the town since settlement in 1873. Interesting stories from locals support our collection. A farm implement and hardware shed are complemented by kitchen and laundry collections as well as RSL and bottle collections. A step back in time where our aim is for visitors to be able to say I remember, and appreciate the pioneers who settled our district and the lifestyles they lived.
