Hidden heritage treasures
A rare and well-preserved slab hut schoolhouse once on nearby ‘Hillside’ is now found at the extensive Woolpack Inn Museum, Holbrook, NSW. This building dates from the time ‘Hillside’ was a Cobb and Co. staging post in the 1880s.
The Rangemore State School building is preserved at MacLagan Memories Museum (no link) on the Darling Downs, South-east Queensland. The school was opened in 1913 and closed in 1962. It is furnished with a range of furniture and materials from different periods.
