Miepoll 3666Miepoll is a farming district north of Euroa and mid-way between Murchison and Violet Town. It is set in flat country and is 140 km. north-north-east of Melbourne. The origin of the name is obscure. It is also expressed as Maypole in Baillere's Victorian Gazetteer, 1865.
Miepoll is on Seven Creeks, and land selections began in 1879 when the pastoral run was forfeited. A store, hotel and blacksmith were opened in 1879, and a school in 1882. A butter factory was opened in 1891 and operated for about twenty years. The district's social focus and venue for some church services was the public hall (1902).
Miepoll has a recreation reserve, fire station and the public hall. The school closed in 1954. The census populations were 218 (1911) and 58 (1961).
