The Shire of Leonora - proudly preserving WA heritage
The Shire of Leonora is home to a number of Western Australian heritage icons which Lotterywest Grants will help to conserve.
Original miners’ cottages Major’s Boarding House, Burglar Bill’s, the Shift Boss’ House, Unnamed Camp and the Function House will be made watertight and secure. The Sons of Gwalia timber incline headframe designed in 1898, the last remaining in Australia will be conserved. A report determining the scope of work will be written on the Barnes’ Federal Theatre, built in 1901 as a venue for community and social activities.
"The Shire of Leonora takes great pride in making a valuable contribution to the preservation of the heritage in its care", said Shire of Leonora Shire President Councillor Peter Craig.
