History and Architecture:

It seems that the town of Leongatha had its beginnings just before the south Gippsland railway line reached that area in 1892. The first Church of England service in Leongatha was held in the home of Miss Shingler on 25 February 1890. It was conducted by Archdeacon Henry Langley and the Reverend C.J. Chambers from Foster.
