Boort Historical Society
Boort and District has a proud history of families, churches, sporting clubs and organisations.
Run by a group of volunteers devoted to preserving objects of the past in our Museum and providing family research information to searchers the Court House Museum has twenty foot ceilings and the original timber of the Judges bench and the witness box make for a very imposing building.
The Museum is open from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM each Friday or at other times by appointment for a $5 opening fee.
The Boort Court House Museum houses a collection of hundreds of items of local importance from aboriginal artifacts through to the Pioneers memorabilia and agricultural tools, many of which were hand made out of necessity.
The collection includes beaded and embroidered items of clothing from the 1880's through to a complete wedding gown trousseau from 1935.
Brownlow Medalist John Schultz was a Boort boy and has kindly donated to our Museum the last pair of boots he wore when playing VFL for Footscray.
We have Japanese invasion money which was brought back from Darwin by some of our soldiers.
