Northern Grampians Shire Council officially opened its redeveloped Pleasant Creek Historic Precinct on Thursday.
Mayor Tony Driscoll said the revamped project would help to protect the proud history of the Stawell community for generations to come.
"The new purpose-built document storage area will allow the Stawell Historical Society to preserve important pieces of this community's history,” he said.
“Northern Grampians Shire Council is proud to have played a part in ensuring that future generations will be able to build upon the fantastic research already being carried out.
"This project is a great example of community groups and both local and state government working together to create an outcome which benefits the entire Stawell community."
