No visit to Proston will be complete without stopping in at our Proston Heritage Museum!
Although we by no means have an exhaustive collection, we continue to collect, collate an preserve all elements of Proston's history. All visitors are welcome to peruse our displays, which include local school histories, vintage memorabilia and artefacts from a range of different clubs and sporting groups.
We also have a carefully filed collection of local family histories, and historic paperwork associated with many different Proston endeavours, peoples, businesses and clubs.
If you are researching something in particular, we invite you to contact us prior to your visit so that we can do our best to accomodate your research focus. Similarly, the Proston Heritage Museum can be accessed outside of our standard times if you contact and make arrangements with our members!
The Proston Heritage Museum is committed to preserving, presenting and achieving the history of Proston and its surrounding districts. if you have something that you feel should be kept, displayed and/or accessed by future generations, please be in touch to see how we can help keep your history alive!
On first visit, we encourage you to explore our curated displays of various Proston heritage pieces.
With so many schools closed in our district over the past 100 years, the Proston Heritage Museum is one central place to view and access a wide-range of school history.
Proston has been home to many iconic and significant businesses over the past 100 years, and we continue to seek and display pieces of those special slices of history.
Heritage and the arts are intrinsically linked, and we are proud of the special pieces of artwork that we have collected that represent different parts of our town and its history.
The Proston Heritage Museum is also home to an extensive, but not quite complete, collection of regional newspapers from the past sixty or so years, predominantly made up of the bi-weekly South Burnett Times publication.
We are very pleased to be able to present a range of publications compiled by Mrs Joyce Penman, all of which can be perused at your leisure, and many of which can also be purchased to take a little of our history home with you!
