[edit] History

The first building constructed in 1859 served as a Church, Sunday school and Headmaster’s residence. A wooden church was built in 1864 and the present building was opened in 1911.

Woodend might almost be described as a Wesleyan settlement. The founders of the church arrived in Woodend in 1857-8.
