Dartmoor District Museum

90 Greenham Street Dartmoor Phone: (03) 55 281 435 Visit Website

Proprietors Michael Greenham and Elly Colley began the museum hoping to preserve an old building and the heritage of the district. The building was originally built as a coach house/blacksmith shop, about 1870, from local field limestone. It served a variety of commercial purposes until its conversion to a museum in 1993. Its whitewashed interior and polished timber floors are a perfect setting to display historical items. Dartmoor has an interesting history, a meeting place in Koori times, a fording place on the Glenelg River during European pastoral expansion and epicentre of the regional softwood pine industry from 1927. See the trials and triumphs of a small rural community.
