ACT Branch: Landscape of Learning – Old Tuggeranong School House

April 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A joint AGHS and National Trust ACT event for the Heritage Festival.

This afternoon visit provides an opportunity to visit and learn about historic Tuggeranong Schoolhouse in Chisholm, in its developing gardens and neighbouring landscape.

The Schoolhouse opened as a public school for pioneer Tuggeranong families in 1880 and operated for nearly 60 years before closing in 1939. An important current project is the creation of suitable garden surrounds for this heritage property.

Our guided visit will be led by professional historian and garden enthusiast Anne Claoue-Long, followed by refreshments. During the afternoon Margaret Reid, National Trust Patron, will officially open the ACT program of the Australian Heritage Festival.

Venue: 34 Enid Lorimer Circuit, Chisholm, ACT.

Cost: $10, children free.

Bookings are essential. Book through the National Trust Office. Email info@nationaltrustact.org.au, or ring 6230 0533 (office open from 8.30 to 3 Tuesday to Thursday – leave a message at other times).
