Our facility provides a wonderful destination for all the family – whatever the weather – there is something for everyone. From diesel tractors to stationary engines and seeders, the museum’s agricultural artifacts trace the story of our farmers as they worked the land. Agricultural tools and machinery in the collections range from a rare fully restored “1914 Waterloo Boy” to 20th century cultivators and harvesters.
Persons of Note: We feel it is important to remember members of our community who have made the Wyalkatchem area what it is today; who are these people?
Persons of note are the ones we meet every day, unassuming but in essence the core of country life with a strength of determination and volunteering spirit that they and we often take for granted; they don’t wish to be big noted but have added value to our community in many ways.
HISTORY – You can Help: Our community is working towards a Wyalkatchem history database in relation to families, times, where they lived, homes, farms and peoples involvement in our past.
Family names, many having been residents in Wylie for up to 100 years include Elsegood, Jones, de Pierres, Holdsworth, Begley, Garn, Garner, Bookham, Brennan, Bruse, Crute, Gamble, Davies, Dickson, Eaton, Maitland, Metcalf, McNee, Pearse, Pease, Ryan, Butt, Reilly, Sutherland, Trenordan, Tyler, Stratford, Ward, Wood.
If you can add to our history database we would appreciate photos and information of the families who have lived here over the years!
