Brief History of the Nagambie Mechanics' Institute

The Institute was established in 1865 or earlier. The first Hall was built in 1873. The library operated from 1874 to unknown. The Institute has been a centre for a wide range of activities. The next Hall was built at the rear of the original building in 1931. An Op Shop was established in `985 and still operates to this day, open 4 days a week. Major works have included: 2002-2003 - inside toilets installed; 2006-2007 - Hall upgrade including flooring, re-wiring and installation of air conditioning; 2011 - restoration of front rooms, kitchen upgrade; 2013 - erection of verandah over north entrance, restoration and painting of wooden window frames, installation of wrought iron gates and painting of facade.

Activities at the Hall in recent years (2000s) have included strength training sessions, youth group meetings, various dance classes, movie nights, discos, theatre company productions, various meetings of local groups, table tennis, Anzac Day services, Masonic Lodge social nights, football club balls, Lions Club Christmas Carols, school concerts, dances and private functions.
