Beginning operation in 1960 the Echuca Historical Society Inc. was organised in order to encourage the return of the paddle steamers to Echuca. The Society was also involved in convincing local council to retain Echuca Wharf in 1967 and supporting council to set up the Port of Echuca precinct. The EHS was able to provide source material such as photographs and plans to assist with this significant local tourist attraction. Since 1969 the museum has been housed in the heritage listed Old Police Station.The EHS has been serving the community for 50 years and over the past 20 years have been open daily for the general public to view exhibits, search the archives and assist other organisations with heritage and conservation needs.
