Eskbank House’s 175th Anniversary Celebrated with a New Publication and Exhibition
“It‘s evident from the attendance on Saturday that Eskbank House still holds a special place in the hearts of the community,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Cr Stephen Lesslie.
“The exhibition and publication capture the reasons why this historic site remains an important cultural space. Eskbank Voices tells the stories of those who’ve helped shape this region through industry and also captures the everyday experience of life in the region through oral histories collected over many years.”
Guests at the celebration enjoyed a series of expert talks on local architecture, historical gardens, and capturing oral histories, as well as performances by Mitchell Conservatorium.
The Voices of Eskbank publication can be purchased at the museum or A Reader’s Heaven bookshop, and the exhibition will continue until 28 January 2018.
This exhibition and publication was made possible with the support of a Heritage Near Me Grant from the New South Wales Government.
