Hillgrove Museum


The excellent Hillgrove Museum is situated in the old public school building. It's focus is on daily life in the once bustling town and the industry of the area. It has an excellent mining display and in it's grounds contain an extensive collection of rural machinery and pre-automotive transport.

    1. It's a wonderful building Joan, the museum is not staffed just a gold coin donation. Not stuffed with clutter but enough to keep up the interest for an hour or so.

  7. I love all things old. We have an old hand push plow out in our yard right now. But it's orange and not red.

    Thanks for sharing these great shots with us. I hope you have a great day!:-)

  10. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
