Interesting News - 50 Years 1971 - 2021

The Fassifern Historical Society began in October 1971. We are celebrating our 50th anniversary this year.

Our museum was once the Templin State School which closed 31 December 1974 because of declining enrolments.

The Fassifern Historical Society have been caretakers of the Templin Historical Museum with 2021 being the Fassifern Historical Society’s 50th year. 

The School, Play Shed, and the Teacher’s residence were the first buildings and over time other historical buildings have been moved onto the site, there is even an 1879 slab hut that was built by Carl Stumer at Milford for his wife and seven children. If you are lucky, you may even see the possum that lives there.

If you are interested we can provide research on family and local history.

The Fassifern Historical Society strive to maintain the buildings and artefacts of the Templin Historical Museum.
