Scholz Park Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Scholz Park Museum complex which was built between 1869 and 1872 incorporates a blacksmiths shop, wheelwrights shop and the Scholz family cottage.

The heritage listed museum is unique in that everything, the buildings, contents, tools and equipment are in the original location and as they were used at the time. It is, so to speak, a living snapshot of life in the early 1900’s. The Scholz family contributed a great deal to the growth and development of Riverton and the surrounding districts and the museum serves as an icon and monument to what they did.

The blacksmiths shop incorporates three working forges which are usually fired up once a month for demonstrations and training.
