Chiverton House Museum captures the essence of life in the late 1800s for the miners at Northampton's Geraldine Lead Mine. Wander through this quaint stone building to see a range of interesting historical items. Outside, visit the machinery shed housing old farming machinery and vintage cars. It is also worth checking out the old stables, butcher building and two stone wells.
Chiverton House is believed to have been built by convicts, which is particularly significant as it would make it one of the last buildings built by convicts in Western Australia.
Located in Northampton, five hours drive north of Perth and just north of Geraldton, Chiverton House Museum is one of three significant historical sites in the small mining town. Whilst in the area be sure to visit the Church of St Mary in Ara Coeli and the ruins of Gwalla Church.
Entry cost: $3.00
The Northampton Visitor Centre is the best place for enquiries about the Museum, and opening times as they vary.
