History

In 1896 the Coolgardie Road Board District was designated and the boundaries defined. In 1921 the Municipality of Coolgardie was dissolved and absorbed into the Coolgardie Road District. The former municipal area became the town ward and the balance of the Coolgardie Road District became the country ward.

In 1961 all Road Boards became Shire Councils.
