Stanley Discovery Museum
The Stanley Museum contains a wealth of information relating to the history and families of the Stanley district and displays items of interest relative to the area. A photographic exhibition dating from 1858 follows the development of the settlement. History of the original 113 allotments and families are detailed in the publication "Along the Terrace" Vol 1, 1843-1922. "In the Shadow of the Nut" which was published to coincide with the present Stanley Primary School's Centenary in 2014 also outlines education in Stanley from settlement and records the names of all students. Both publications are only available at the Museum. Local History Journals and publications and the DVD "Trading out of Stanley" are also available for sale.
