Called “Pioneer Portraits”, it has some lovely portraits of our early local inhabitants. There is an information sheet with some background on each of the photos that you can have and follow as you view the exhibit. Everyone is invited to visit this exhibit – a tribute to those who came before us to settle Goulbourn Township.
