Crows Nest Folk Museum and Village boasts its very own historic village. The buildings within the village have been lovingly restored by volunteers who have paid great attention to every detail, making sure that everything is as close to authentic as possible.

A very significant building is 'Carbethon House' built in the 1880s and moved to Crows Nest in 1978. It marked the beginning of the collection of now 21 buildings that make up the village. Being the birthplace of Ray White, it has the original business building displayed on the grounds as well as the beautiful old home of Alan White.
