Im­por­tant to pre­serve his­tory

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Euroa His­tor­i­cal and Ge­nealog­i­cal Society would like to ex­press our con­cern about the fu­ture of the ‘Gam­ble’s’ Nurs­ery build­ing.

This build­ing rep­re­sents the last re­main­ing tim­ber re­tail shop in Bin­ney Street dat­ing back to the late 1800’s.

The build­ing, along with a num­ber of oth­ers, has pre­vi­ously been recog­nised as hav­ing sig­nif­i­cant her­itage value by the Shire of Strath­bo­gie in a se­ries of con­sul­tants re­ports some years ago.

The Euroa His­tor­i­cal Society has an in­ter­est in the preser­va­tion and con­ser­va­tion of the his­tory of our com­mu­nity.

Our com­mu­nity sto­ries are told through the preser­va­tion of this his­tory.

The his­tor­i­cal society, at our re­cent meet­ing on De­cem­ber 3, agreed that it was im­por­tant to pre­serve as much of the ‘ Gam­ble’s’ premises as pos­si­ble so that the story of our town can be told to vis­i­tors and the com­mu­nity at large.

We would urge the Shire of Strath­bo­gie to take an ac­tive part in pre­serv­ing and main­tain­ing this build­ing and other build­ings of his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance in our towns. Gaye Wal­lace Sec­re­tary Euroa His­tor­i­cal and Ge­nealog­i­cal Society
