Mu­seum’s 50th birthday

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

The Fin­ley and District His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum was a cen­tre­piece of re­cent cel­e­bra­tions to mark 125 years since the town­ship of Fin­ley was gazetted, and now it will host its own cel­e­bra­tion.

The mu­seum, which highlights Fin­ley’s es­tab­lish­ment and his­tory, will cel­e­brate its own 50th an­niver­sary this week­end.

The cel­e­bra­tions will run from 10.30am to 3pm Satur­day.

In­cluded in the ac­tiv­i­ties will be the un­veil­ing of a spe­cial plaque, of­fi­ci­ated by NSW Mem­ber for Mur­ray Austin Evans and found­ing Fin­ley and District His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum mem­ber Henry Mathe­son.

And what’s a cel­e­bra­tion face­paint­ing for the kids?

The mu­seum, lo­cated within the Mary Law­son Way­side Rest, is a show­case of the her­itage of the Fin­ley district and pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to step back in time and view those items that sup­ported the lives of our pi­o­neer­ing ru­ral fam­i­lies.

It in­cor­po­rates a large dis­play of trucks and trac­tors, an old school house and other mem­o­ra­bilia.

The birthday event is free to at­tend. with­out
