Records from the Castlemaine Historical Society confirm that this was formerly the Church of England Sunday School, and later a Scout Hall, in Barker Street, North Castlemaine.
It was a huge undertaking to move the hall just 8 kilometres from its original home in Castlemaine to Harcourt. In scenes reminiscent of the Monster Moves TV show, the hall was moved, piece by piece, up the road and under the rail bridge. Some of these images capture the process.
Harcourt is a small town with a great deal to offer. The town is set in a lush valley at the foot of Mount Alexander which contains stunning views and significant Aboriginal heritage sites. The town is surrounded by extensive fruit orchards and vineyards and the area has a well-deserved reputation for outstanding wine and cider production.
