With the new year it’s full steam ahead for work on Gulgong’s Holtermann Museum, which when completed will be home to the UNESCO listed Holtermann Gulgong and Hill End gold rush photographs.
The structural work is finished, breathing new life into the very tired facades of the old Greatest Wonder of the World and American Tobacco Warehouse Company buildings.
A screening room, which will also double as a space for community groups, is now standing at the rear of the block as well.
The fit-out of the buildings – including the many digital displays – is one of the big jobs on the horizon as the project heads towards a hopeful 2019 opening.
Gulgong is set to be well represented in the collection of photographs, with the surrounding areas already part of the showpieces of the building.
A large photo depicts the ‘main street’ of Gold Rush era Canadian Lead, while Sam Hand’s Boarding House at Home Rule has been recreated both in the courtyard area in the middle of facility.
