The Community Group of Greenough was established in 1981 to promote community involvement in the history of the Greenough Flats, 20km south of Geraldton, Western Australia. In October 2012, the group took over management of the Greenough Pioneer Museum (established in 1966 by the Geraldton Historical Society in the former Maley family homestead built between 1862 and 1880). The property is 19km south and is owned by the City of Greater Geraldton and leased to the Community Group of Greenough to be run as a local history museum. Now rebranded the Greenough Museum & Gardens, the museum displays the history of the Maley family as well as the social history of the Greenough Flats, from Aboriginal occupancy to today.
This building was established as a museum in 1966 by the Geraldton Historical Society to house and display an ever increasing collection of old objects, photographs and archives. In 2012 the building’s lease was transferred to the Community Group of Greenough. The Geraldton Historical Society then removed their collection, consisting of over 4,000 objects.
Since that time, a new collection has been established; now numbering over 1,000 objects, 2,500 documents and 1,100 photographs.
The diverse collection examines the social history of the Front Greenough Flats, and includes the nationally significant Maley Mill & Store Archives.
