A short history - 50 Years at No. 20 Riddell Street, Molong
The 1964 Molong Show created an interest in preserving the history of Molong and District by displaying an antique collection. The Molong Apex Club with the help of Molong Shire Council and interested townsfolk formed the Molong Historical Society.

May 1965 was the first Annual General Meeting. The foundation President was Mrs Murray-Wilcox. A room behind the then Rural Bank was rented and opened as a museum in June 1967, it was soon filled with exhibits. A more permanent building was found at 20 Riddell Street, Molong and was opened in November 1970. The Historical Collection has remained in this building.
