Moree Local Aboriginal Land Council Assist Lands Building Transfer
Thanks to the Moree Local Aboriginal Land Council, transfer of the former Crown Lands Building to the Moree and District Historical Society is now complete.
With a vision to create the old building into a historical museum underway, the MLALC has provided vital assistance to lift the Aboriginal Land Claim over the site.
Moree and District Historical Society President Stephen Ritchie is delighted that progress for the Historical Museum is now within their sights.
“The transfer of the old Crown Lands building to the Council and then onto the Moree and District Historical Society has been an ongoing collaboration between our Local Member Adam Marshall MP, Crown Lands and Moree Plains Shire Council for the past four years.
“Without the important assistance of the Moree Local Aboriginal Land Council, our goal to create the Moree Historical Museum would not have been possible. It has truly been a group effort,” said Mr Ritchie.
Funding efforts are currently underway for the start-up costs of the historical museum through the promotion of The Triangle racing history book which has been co-funded by the NSW Government and Moree Plains Shire Council.
Thanks to the in-kind support of author Bill Poulos, all proceeds of the book sales will assist the formation of the Moree Historical Museum.
