Nundle history gets a make-over
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson today officially opened the Nundle Courthouse Museum following a $50,000 renovation.
Mr Anderson said the NSW Government was proud to provide $48,872 towards the project which will see the historical building preserved for many years to come.
“Our history is who we are, which is why it is so important for the Government to invest in projects like the refurbishment we’ve seen on the Nundle Courthouse Museum.
“The Nundle District Lions Club does an incredible job looking after the iconic building and I am proud to be able to support them in these vital upgrades.
“The refurbishment included carpeting, installing new remote controlled blinds, structural work, painting, waterproofing and replacing parts of the guttering, so there will definitely be some notable changes for visitors who have been to the museum previously.
“It really is a wonderful snapshot of Nundle’s history and I highly recommend that anyone who hasn’t been before take a drive out to see it.”
Nundle Lions Club Secretary Stephen Millar said “The renovation will protect the valuable historical collection, stabilise the building and provide a more comfortable experience for visitors.”
The 19th century colonial architecture style building built by local builder George Davidson in 1880. Nundle District Lions Club took over custody of the building in 1988 to use as the museum.
