Highfields Pioneer Village

About

The objectives of the organisation is to not only establish and maintain a static display of significant historical artefacts and a record of significant historic events, but also to demonstrate and pass on the traditional skills by which early settlers built communities on the Darling Downs.

Among the displays is a fine collection of antique radios and electrical appliances from a bygone era. The Heritage Chapel was built in 1909 as a Congregational Church in the nearby township of Meringandan. The Village Fashion Shop features an original silk wedding dress from the 1890′s. The unique collection of Tinsmithing machinery is housed at the Village and the facade on the building is a replica of the old Toowoomba Spring Works. The historic Gore Railway Station now also takes pride of place at the Highfields Pioneer Village. The B.J Palmer Boot repair Shop is a testament to a time when life was much simpler. No matter how old you are there is something for everyone at Highfields Pioneer Village!
