The Feilding & Districts Community Archive aims to preserve and store the history of our area.   The Archive contains material from many local clubs and organisations, both current and defunct, providing a wonderful insight into our District's past.  There are also significant personal collections containing documents and photographs depicting local history.

ANZAC Display

2018 is the final year of the WWI Centennial Commemorations.  On display within the museum will be a memorial wall of our soldiers who lost their lives during WWI, a garden of crosses, and on the big screen 'A Silent Tribute To Those Who Served'.   Also on display will be a miscellany of items from the era including cartoons, objects and photographs.   The display in the foyer focuses on books and diaries relating to World War I, and a variety of photographs, postcards and other interesting archives of the time, held within our collection.
