Rushworth Historical Society has dedicated their lovely Garden beside the Museum to the Miners of Rushworth and Whroo who lost their lives in the Quest for Gold in the Gold Rush which started in the district in 1853.
Now located in the garden is a large piece of Corop Basalt which has a commemorative plaque attached, and beside it an Olive tree has been planted.
Visitors are most welcome to come and take a look at the small garden and admire the hard work of our curator Cheryl. She has made up a wonderful water wise garden and it show off her curative idea’s.
To obtain the Rock and have it placed in the Garden was a large team effort and the Society would like to thanks everyone involved in the project for their time and effort..So next time you are passing why not call in and have a look it will be well worth your while
