About the Teviot Museum
The Teviot Museum is located in what was originally built in 1872 as the first Methodist Church for the district.
Inside you will probably meet Robin Christie, local historian and volunteer enthusiast. Robin can tell you many different stories about the history of the Roxburgh township, the people who live, and have lived here, and the events that occurred over the history of the area that have shaped the town, making it the wonderful community that exists today.
On entering the historic building that houses the museum collection, you will be transported back in time. Back to the era of the mid 1800’s when the township of Roxburgh was bustling with the excitement that follows the discovery of gold in the area. Through to the days when pastoral farming and fruit growing became established, then ending the historical journey at the construction of the Roxburgh Hydro Dam in the 1950s.
The museum is run by a Committee of dedicated volunteers who curate and care for the multiple collections held both within the walls of the museum, and outside in a covered courtyard.
