Gerringong School of Arts

Do you have any historical photos of the Gerringong School of Arts hall in any of its guises? Did you have a party or wedding there, or maybe that's where you earned your Scout insignia knot badge?

The hall is soon to become the new home of the Gerringong and District Historical Society Museum as part of the new Gerringong Library, Museum and Community Facility.

Please contact us if you are happy for us to scan your photos to add them to our local history collection and make them available to the design team working on the museum project.
