The People and Places Historic Display in the Chewton Town Hall is open from 1pm - 4pm at weekends.

The volunteers who staff this display have developed a listing of “Chewton” service personnel from all the wars, deciphered the signatures from the 1873/4 “Railway Petition”, researched the location of all burial places/cemeteries as well as the Rifle Ranges and Toll Gates and early access tracks to Forest Creek. Research also continues on the Monster Meeting as new information is discovered. This work has been significantly added to by the generous donation of research papers by Barbara James, a local history researcher for many years. Many buildings remain as part of Chewton’s living history. Two are actually owned by the community and in the custodianship of the CDS.
