At the time, the locals sourced funding and built Bullsbrook’s first public building ” The Bullsbrook Agricultural Hall.

Now, having faced recent demolition, the hall has been saved, restored and is ready to be used again as a museum to document the history of Bullsbrook.

Bullsbrook Residents and Ratepayers Association secretary Anne Sibbel said the museum was looking to the public to help source artefacts, stories and exhibits for the museum.

‘We’re at the stage where we can start to collect items for the museum, so if anyone has anything to loan or contribute to the museum then we’d like to hear from them,’ she said. ‘There are so many changes planned for Bullsbrook that it’s important we can remember and preserve that old history.’

‘The WA Museum has been out to advise us and have given us some good direction.’ As such, the history museum will be divided into five main categories ” the lime mining, Country Women’s Association, RAAF in Bullsbrook, pioneer families and Aboriginal heritage.

Input is also sought to document 50 years of Bullsbrook Boy Scouts and the centenary of World War I.
