History of Jubilee Hall

feature_pic_rules02In 1898 the original hall was officially opened, on the land donated by Mr Nicholls, adjacent to his brickworks, funded by local fundraising and donations. It was established as a place for in-door recreation on the long winter evenings. It was called Jubilee Hall as it was timed to open in the Diamond Jubilee year of Queen Victoria’s reign.

In 1983 the Ash Wednesday fires destroyed the hall, but with the help of the Macedon Ranges Shire Council and the local community the hall was rebuilt and officially re-opened in 1990.
