Glenorchy Heritage & Museum Group
The Glenorchy Heritage and Museum Group were delighted to be a recipient of a Community Grant.
We’re using our grant to develop two historic outposts — one out at Kinloch and the other near the aerodrome where we’ll tell the story of the Glenorchy Road.
The very first ‘turning of the sod’ took place at that site in March 1956 and six years later at the Glenorchy Centennial the road opened for the first time in November 1962.
The Community Grant has allowed us to have historic panels printed and to pay for help in creating the outposts themselves (which will be made from local salvaged historic materials). We’re excited to be bringing GY’s history back to the community and our visitors in a new way.
