St Boniface Maydena
This small wooden church was originally located at Fitzgerald in Tasmania and was built on land donated by Mary Pitfield. The builder was George Roberts.
When the Australian Newsprint Mills began logging operations at Maydena it was decided to move the church there.
In December 1933 the church was loaded onto a sledge and pulled by a bulldozer to Maydena where it was installed on a piece of land on Kallista Road donated by the newsprint mills.
The church came complete with a bell which is said to be one of those missing from Port Arthur and has since been returned.
