Scaddan Pioneer Park has a history going back more than 100 years. The district opened in 1910, when 1000-acre blocks of land were released to be cleared for farming. Today this pleasant day rest area is an eye opener for all who visit or pass by.
The amenities buildings serve as an artist's canvas hosting some attractive murals.

The Bretag, Roger and Taylor families were the first to make Scaddan their home, living in houses made of iron and bush timber, with earth floors.

Later, the Scaddan Temperance Hotel was built, (without a liquor licence). The building has been used as a bed and breakfast, a post office and a store.

In 1924, the town site was officially gazetted and named after the first Labor premier of Western Australia, John Scaddan.
