Geschiedenis

The Lambing Flat Folk Museum is run by the Young Historical Society Inc.

The society was formed in 1958 following a public meeting called by the Mayor of Young at the request of the Young Municipal Council. The society commenced to collect historical material to form the nucleus of a museum. Initially items were displayed in a room at the South West Library. In 1967 the museum moved to the old Presbyterian Church building, on the corner of Lynch and Marina Streets. Later the museum moved to its current location in the Community Arts Centre, Young.

Geografische en culturele context

In 1860 gold was discovered at Lambing Flat near Young. Lambing Flat became the richest goldfield discovered in New South Wales.
The famous 'Roll Up' banner (with the lettering 'No Chinese Roll Up Roll Up') carried at the head of the procession of the anti-Chinese rioters at Lambing Flat in 1861, is on display in the Young Historical Society’s Museum (see http://lambingflatmuseum.webs.com/lambing-flat-riots)
