Chapman Valley Historical Society Museum, Nanson

History Museum · Hidden Gem · Specialty Museum
The Upper Chapman Road Board building at Nanson was advertised to be demolished, however, after much public outcry from the residents, a meeting was called and from this meeting, the Chapman Valley Historical Society was formed in 1982. Several years later the group made the decision to develop a museum. A farm shed was donated and farm machinery from throughout the Chapman Valley District was collected. To increase the museum's appeal, the society developed a timeline of the local history using photos and historical information. The museum now houses family histories, photos of pioneers, wedding photos, newspaper clippings, farming implements, household items and district memorabilia.
