Built in 1885, the Jamestown Railway Station Museum collection reflects the way of life for farming and town families.
The museum is housed in the Jamestown Railway Station which replaced the original timber-framed weatherboard building that burnt down in 1884. It was opened as a museum during the 1971 District Centenary Celebrations.
The collection reflects the bygone way of life in this farming community, highlighting the history of the Bundaleer Forest and the beginnings of businesses such as Southern Farmers and MS McLeod Ltd. Personal items and biographical information of Sir John Cockburn, former mayor, prominent politician and SA Premier 1889-90 are also on display.
