Facilties


The Logan City Historical Museum Society Inc, a volunteer organisation, shares the old Kingston Butter Factory building with a Craft Centre, performance space and a refreshment kiosk. The Kingston Butter Factory was built in 1906 with production of butter commencing in 1907. Peak production was reached in 1934, with 3,367 tons of butter produced in that year. Production ceased in 1983 owing to urbanisation, ending an important era in the development of Logan City.

The most important items in the collection are without doubt the full set of Southern Queensland Dairy Cooperative records from 1906 through to close of operations.
