Sandgate & District Historical Society and Museum
The Sandgate and Districts Historical Society and Museum’s collection is housed in an air-conditioned, single-storey brick building. In the 1880s, on this site, stood the Mohoupt’s General Store which later became a local funeral business. In 1993 the building was purchased by the Society and officially opened as a museum in 1994.
The Sandgate Museum features a wall display of chronological history; a thematic display under glass; various free-standing historical items; a small library of books, video tapes and slides; a large paper collection on file of localities and identities; and a large collection of photographs.
The Society is a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to safeguard the community’s memories.
The goal of the Society is to continually grow their collections and extend their research while at the same time promoting interest within the community.
The Society provides guided tours of local historical areas and lectures delivered at local schools – contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange tours and lectures.
