Nangeenan

The locality of Nangeenan is situated on the Great Eastern Highway some 15 kms west of Merredin and 245 kms east of Perth. It is within the Shire of Merredin. A rail siding was established here in about 1898 and shortly after that settlers moved in. The townsite was gazetted in 1905. The origin of the town's name is not known but it is certainly of Aboriginal origin. Nangeenan used to be a mail distribution centre servicing towns as far away as Mukinbudin
