Gresford Heritage Museum

The Museum shows the extensive and rich history of the area, extending back to the first settlements in the 1820’s. Collecting, preserving and making accessible the stories, artefacts, documents and photographs which chronicle this history is the fundamental purpose of the Museum and the Gresford Historical Society.The first recorded Europeans in the district were timber-getters who began extracting valuable red cedar around 1812 by following the Gringai trails through the forests. The Hunter Valley was locked out to free settlers prior to 1820, which resulted in the first local land grants being made around 1826
