The History of the Bellinger Valley. | Bellingen and Urunga Museums.
Had the pleasure of meeting a number of the Historical Society and Museum Volunteers yesterday at the launch of the Pegums’ new book about the PILOT HOUSE in URUNGA.
URUNGA MUSEUM was washed out with the 09 floods and is now approaching readiness for re-opening due to the industry and vision of a small core of slightly deranged Urunguans.
The webpage is also up and running with some equally deranged Bello people hard at work.
Both jobs are impressive and without these dedicated people, we would keep losing our History just as we have recently lost the unique roof on McBaron’s Silo at Raleigh in the winds.
How exciting to see the Old Valley coming alive again in the Museums and Online.
There are more stories out there and one of them might be YOURS.
An email to the Historical Society with YOUR snippet of history just might add a missing piece of our Valley’s Mosaic.
