Clifton Historical Museum is set to tumble
ONE of the oldest buildings in Clifton is set to tumble.
The Clifton Historical Museum, located in the old butter factory, will be demolished to make way for a new museum.
Its removal will be paid for by a $250,000 Drought Communities Programme grant. Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said the project would be good for the town.
“These funds will not only be used to demolish the current site but also assist with asbestos decontamination, pest control, securing the site as well as removal and storage of the museum’s prized pioneering history collection,” he said.
“While it may seem counter-productive to demolish the current site, the new building will be more suitable for housing the collection, something that needs to be preserved for generations to come.”
The Clifton Historical Museum is a community driven imitative that pays tribute to the district’s pioneering past.
