Before the switch on the wall . . .

Have you ever envisaged a life without electricity?

Murrurundi & District Historical Society will show you in its next exhibition scheduled to open on April 30.

Called Before there was Power, the exhibition will feature exhibits and photographs of what it was like before electricity came to the upper reaches of the Hunter Valley.

Meanwhile, time is running out to see the acclaimed Drawing Room-Work on Paper which is scheduled to be taken down at the end of the month.
