Residents are encouraged to share any photographs and documents they may have on historic buildings within the region as part of a new heritage project launched by Council.

‘Snapshot of Our Heritage’ is a project that will involve capturing historically and socially significant information through digital recordings.

This information will be cataloged and made accessible online for current and future generations and inform Council’s heritage management strategies.

This project is funded through a $97,000 grant from the NSW Government’s Office of Environment and Heritage, Heritage Near Me Program. Council is hosting a number of Heritage Talks where residents can learn more about the project and supply materials for copying, alternatively materials can be supplied online.

    Historic images have been collected and Council has engaged a local photographer to capture modern day images of buildings. These images will be included in bespoke site that will catalogue all images.

    Landowners are currently being approach for their consent to have these images published.

    The site is still under construction and is expected to be live in June this year. As an addition to the project, 'Heritage Trails' will also be developed as a virtual guide for residents and visitors to learn more about the story behind our region's historic streetscapes.

    Council is proud to launch a new project to photograph and catalogue the region’s heritage buildings after securing a $97,000 grant from the NSW Government Office of Environment and Heritage.

    The six-month project will involve capturing historically and socially significant information through digital recordings.

    As part of the project residents will be invited to share historical materials and records about a range of heritage sites.

    This information will be catalogued and made accessible online for current and future generations and inform Council’s heritage management strategies.

    Council’s General Manager, Brad Cam said the project will also inform future initiatives, such as interactive heritage walks within the region’s main centres.

    “This project will increase the community’s awareness of historically significant sites so we can ensure they are maintained into the future,” Mr Cam said.

    “The community are encouraged to be involved by attending one of three Heritage Talks and sharing stories, documents, or photographs which will then be digitally recorded and catalogued online.”

    The first Heritage Talk will be held at Kandos Library on Tuesday 11 December from 10am beginning with a project overview, followed by individual appointments with Council staff who will begin collating the information provided.

    A session will also be held in Gulgong and Mudgee in the New Year. Follow Council’s Facebook page and website for further details.
