The Pioneer Chapel at Poowong is the oldest public building in the Shire of South Gippsland (VIC, Australia), originally constructed in 1878 by L.C.Holmes. As part of the upcoming 150th birthday celebrations in 2024 for the township of Poowong, the chapel is currently undergoing urgent structural updating. This is primarily the completion of the toilet block facilities which were commenced over 4 years ago but never finished. These need to be waterproofed, sealed and painted so as they are safe and presentable for public use. There are also repairs and replacement of some of the old external weatherboards. There are upcoming events planned for the chapel and these projects need to completed before we can actually hold any event. The Poowong Historical Group as custodians of the Chapel are seeking urgently needed funding to assist with these projects.The people of Poowong are a proud and close knit community and the preservation of our history is of vital and significant importance.
