EUGOWRA HISTORICAL MUSEUM NEWS

Members of the Eugowra Historical Museum & Bushranger Centre are excited with the news of a $34,370 grant from Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal enabling a further extension to their present Museum building. This extension will then allow many of the objects presently in storage to be placed on display.

Meanwhile things tick over at a steady pace at the Museum with groups of visitors arriving by coach or small numbers travelling by car. Most people find items on display which are of great interest to them.

Local ladies Irene Sharp and Verna Riley recently brought their father Noel Langford for a visit to enable him to view the beautifully restored hearse, which came from Picton and was restored and donated to the Museum by Peter McIntyre.

Noel's father, Lorne Langford and his grandfather Harry Langford, both operated an undertaker's business in Eugowra prior to WW2.

The Langford name printed on the hearse was completed recently by one of our Mural sign writers and does not imply that it ever belonged to that person.
