  • A visit to the award-winning Residency Museum gives you a fantastic insight into the region's history. It's an ideal way to soak up some of York's great atmosphere and find out fascinating stories about local people and places. The Museum is full of lively, colourful new exhibitions, professionally designed and covering a diverse range of themes. Built during the 1850's as the Depot Superintendent's Quarters, this historic house is now the last remaining part of York's Convict Depot. It then became the official home of the town's Resident Magistrate hence the name, the Residency. During the early twentieth century it was used as part of the Old York Hospital, later being saved from disrepair by the efforts of the York Society. It opened as a Municipal Museum in 1972 and continues to be managed by the Shire of York, with help from community volunteers.
  • A museum worth checking out if you are in town. Great history and background to how York became a settlement years ago.
