The State Heritage listed Old Flour Mill, the most prominent building in Mallala, was erected in 1878. Mallala and Districts Historical committee was formed in 1968, and in 1970, Adelaide Plains Council purchased the building for the use of the committee as a museum.

The museum holds a set of three original Mill plans, from the 1870s, forming part of an interpretative display telling the history of the mill. The southern gallery houses a range of displays that expand on the life of a small country community.

Interpretative displays of the military and service history of the district, relate stories of local involvement, from the Boer war, two World wars, and the peace keeping activities of more recent times. Of particular interest are significant displays of the District’s RAAF connections, including the role of the RAAF No 6 Service Flight Training School. Upstairs in the mill building is display of home wares, depicting the home life of the 1920-1950s. The gallery and pastoral shed contain agricultural displays of farm machinery, including blacksmith forge, penny farthing and REO Speedwagon Fire Engine.

NB: Most of the Museum is on ground level except the original Mill 2nd story Margaret Tiller Gallery only accessible via narrow stairs.
