Our History

The first Christmas Hills Mechanics’ Institute was constructed in 1877 on a site now occupied by the Sugarloaf Sailing Club. After a disastrous fire in 1893, the Institute was eventually rebuilt and opened in 1895 on the present site. The land was donated by Thomas Young, a leading selector of the fledgling Christmas Hills Community.

Exactly a century later, a second, larger room was erected adjoining the earlier, and named the “Harold Muir Hall” in honour of the Institute’s long-standing Trustee. Following the 2009 fires, the old hall dating from 1895 was demolished and rebuilt, funded largely out of grants provided by the Victorian Bushfire Recovery Authority. It was opened in October 2013.
