Charleville Historic House Museum

Charleville, Murweh Area

There aren't too many buildings in Charleville that can boast a history as long and colour as the Charleville Historic House Museum. Dating back to 1887 the building was purpose built as Charleville's first national bank, before it went onto become a private boarding house until the 1970's when it was purchased by the Charleville and District Historical Society. It then became the museum it is today. Filled to the brim with treasures of yesteryear, some dating back as far as the 1800's, you'll be surprised at what you'll find and it's well worth your time to take a look.

Many of the original features of the bank still remain which include marble fireplaces and the vault. The display is completed with a large early day machinery display in the grounds including a life size replica Cobb & Co Coach, Rail Ambulance and Steam Engine.
