The Post Office opened on 6 October 1890 next to the proposed railway which arrived in 1892. In 1900 a community hall was built where the Butter Factory building stands today.

Not long after that the Union Church was opened and since then the town has had two churches.The Great South Gippsland Railway line closed to passengers in 1980 for all stations past Leongatha.
