THE PINJARRA FESTIVAL – 2nd and 3rd June

The Old Schoolmaster’s House was open during the Festival from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June.  This year we promoted three display areas (2 in the Edenvale Homestead), manning a stall on the verandah and conducting guided tours each morning. 

  • A huge thank you to our member Bruce Zilm who worked tirelessly to produce some wonderful wooden items to sell at the Festival.  These were mostly of jarrah and include chopping boards, cheese boards, candle holders and keyboards.
  • Second hand books, fiction and non-fiction but history related, also featured at the stall. 
  • Potted plants
  • Historical Society post cards, greeting cards and sketches were also available. These items are always available at the Old Schoolmaster’s House when next you visit.



for All interested persons and All Members

A most interesting programme is prepared for 2018 – coming events include:
