Granya Pioneer Museum is looking to the future after attracting more than 100 people to its 20th anniversary celebrations on Sunday.
Guests shared morning tea and lunch while the donated Star Wagon, brought from South Australia in the 19th century, was unveiled.
Committee member Pam Eade said the occasion encouraged the museum to “keep powering ahead”.
“It was beautiful, the sun was shining and everything was just perfect,” she said.
“Everyone caught up with each other.
“There really was positive feedback on what we’ve done and how it’s going.
“We have offers of important memorabilia donated to us and more family history coming up and there’s continual research.”
Secretary Jenny McKinley said the day’s success raised the idea of holding more open days every second year.
“It would have been the biggest crowd we’ve had there since it opened,” she said.
Wodonga Historical Society’s Jean Whitla, who opened the museum in 1998, and one of the founding members Enid Warnock, of Granya, cut a commemorative cake.
