Clarence Town and District Historical Museum

Erringhi was the Aboriginal name for the area in which Clarence town now resides. A town was established on the banks of the Williams River and was renamed Clarence Town in 1826 and was a timber cutting town. The current Town Courthouse was built in 1869 and remained a courthouse until about 1970. The building remained idle until a bi-centenary project was set in motion to restore it in 1986, this work was completed in 1992. The museum is for the history of Clarence Town and surrounding areas, it is a heritage listed property and the historical society that runs it as a not-for-profit organisation, donations for the upkeep are greatly appreciated. Please take time to visit and support us. We love our history and are passionate about keeping it.
