Gunnedah and District Historical Society to hold open day

GUNNEDAH and District Historical Society members are hosting a free open day at the Water Tower Museum on Saturday, September 30.

The museum was constructed over a 10-year period using volunteer labour and it is quite unique in that it was Gunnedah’s first town water reservoir.

Although the museum has a number of floors with steps involved, the ground floor features one of the best military displays in the region, recently unveiled courtesy of a bequest left by former mayor, the late Bill Clegg.

Society volunteers work extremely hard to preserve the town’s history and it is very rewarding to see locals and visitors enjoy every aspect of this “reservoir of memories”.

Everyone is invited to come along and enjoy a trip down memory lane, while educating young relatives about “the way it used to be”.

The museum is located on South Street and will be open from 10am.
