Description

The Northampton Historical Society was formed in 1969 and meets in Chiverton House (pictured above) which was built c 1865-85 and sits in the main street in the town. This building is owned by the Shire but given exclusively to the Historical Society, which runs it as a museum. The area saw the very first mining activity in the state – originally for tin - so the museum highlights this activity.

The museum has a collection of documents, old School books diaries and letters and a large collection of photographs from past residents. The backyard of the house has a collection of old farm machinery.

The Society has 54 members and volunteers, and meets on the 3rd Friday of the month at 4pm. Volunteers open the museum from 10 – 12 & 2 – 4 Sat/Sun/Mon/Wed/Friday. Admission $3 Adults, 50c Students. Volunteers also deal with requests for information. The Society sells an informational  pamphlet Looking Back  by Captain Mitchell

The district contains the Gwalia mine site – settled c1863 which now has interpretive signs, as does the Lynton Convict Hiring Depot 1853-57 on the Port Gregory/ Kalbarri road
