Scholz Park Museum

The Museum is a unique, self-contained entity - the Scholz Family Cottage (built 1872) where a family of six was raised, adjacent to the Wheelwright (1872) and Blacksmith (1869) Shops - all set within a park environment. The Cottage features possessions and household items belonging to the Scholz family while the Wheelwright and Blacksmith Shops contain the many tools and wide range of equipment - some of which were made on the premises - used by the Scholz family for almost 100 years. All of the things needed for carrying out these particular trades are complete and on display in the respective Workshops. The property is listed on the State Heritage and National Estate Registers.
