Did you know that the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse has operated nearly continuously since it was first built in 1848? And not just as a schoolhouse!
After closing as a schoolhouse in 1859, the space was continuously used as a Parish Hall for Little Trinity Church.
In 1899 it became a Boer War recruitment centre.
In the 1930s it operated as a soup kitchen, serving nearly 1500 people a week.
In the 1960s it became a notable location for performance events and youth programs.
And finally, thanks to architect Eric Arthur and local citizens, it was restored into a museum in 1972.
We hope you come and visit our space soon!
