Newspaper article circa 1865
The statement of significance is an excellent way of becoming informed as to the importance of this site.
It does not however recognize that the Omeo Historical Society Local History Collection >>>
is housed throughout the buildings and that the collection is very important and significant in a local sense.
This is not a fault of the Statement of significance which is not meant
to "see" anything other than the Precinct grounds and buildings.
See the Statements for other areas below---
