Mogumber was run by the Methodist Overseas Mission from 18 August 1951 when the Department of Native Affairs handed over the Moore River Native Settlement. Aboriginal children and young people of all ages were placed there by parents, child welfare authorities or the Children's Court. Until 1963, children at Mogumber were under the guardianship of the Commissioners of Native Affairs and Native Welfare.
In the 1970s, some children were moved from Mogumber to houses in Perth.
In 1974, Mogumber became the Mogumber Training Centre.
