Beschrijving

Geschiedenis

The Woodend and District Heritage Society was formed in 1977. The society began computer indexing in 1985 and developed its own software, Heritage I. Also in 1985, the first edition of Heritage News, the Society’s newsletter, was published.

The Woodend Court House was officially handed over to the society as its headquarters in 1989 and in 1993, the society’s collection was moved into the Court House. After a fundraising campaign, and with a grant from Heritage Victoria, in 1997 an extension to the Court House was built to house the growing archive.

Geografische en culturele context

Woodend is a small town in Victoria, in the Shire of Macedon Ranges local government area and is located about halfway between Melbourne and Bendigo.
