The Park was established in 1977. It was founded by the people of Gore and Eastern Southland to protect the history of the local area. 

The original land was mined for clay for the adjacent brickworks. Many volunteer hours have gone into transforming this land from a derelict untidy space to the area it is today.
The campus includes a wildlife pond, a waterwheel, a crane that loaded the 'Earnslaw' at Kingston and a church with a lychgate.

The historic buildings onsite include a church with a lychgate, an old bank, a pioneer cottage, an early school and a blacksmith.
We have a large complex with an office, a kitchen, souvenir counter and public toilets. 
Inside the complex are displays of vintage tractors and cars and agricultural implements - many of which are fully restored.
There are also displays of a saddler, communications, domestic displays, a boot maker and a variety of household and farm items.

There is also a fully-restored 1904 Burrell traction engine.
Our complex adjoins the Vintage Car Club Motor Museum. 
There is ample car and bus parking available on the grounds
