Kersbrook History Hub Display

We have researched the Kersbrook area from its origins. The local families have supplied us with photos of earlier days when logging, fruit orchards, dairy farming and even gold mining drew people to the area for work. Our collection includes information, artifacts and photos. Our school’s original building and teachers residence still remain in use today, more than 150 years later. The first public house, along with the original Post Office, plus shops, blacksmiths, churches, cemeteries and our 107 year old Institute building will all be represented in our display. We have oral histories from our older residents transcribed with interesting stories from them for you to read. We always welcome any contributions and enquiries to our History Hub, with meetings held in the Kersbrook Public Hall.
