Morwell on the March

A Journey in Time – A Resource for Local History

Morwell on the March


All facets of town life were affected: education, retailing, transport, industry, banking, emergency services, the legal system, and all levels of Government activity.

The 1950s were, in the main, a time of rapid growth and expansion for the township of Morwell.  Many additions to the townscape were established and major improvements to existing services were initiated during this busy period in our history.

The aim of this project is to briefly detail some of the developments that took place during the period under review.

A future project for the Society will be to produce an in-depth and far more expansive appraisal of the 1950s …   In the meantime, I hope that you find this work both interesting and informative.

Enjoy your reading
