Friday - a little bit of history ...... Enjoy

These granite Rocks are located in Goolwa, South Australia, in front of the Goolwa Museum and the history behind them is:

" The three inverted granite key stone at the building entrance and which carry the National Trust Insignia were the three centre stones of a complete arch of five, six sets of which locked the building structure of the A.N.Z., King William/Currie St Bank.

This structure was build in 1860 and the granite came from West Island on the South Coast. The complete Aarch of the stones (5) weighs 7.5 tons and was donated by the A.N.Z Bank, to be returned to the original whereabouts as a fitting reminder of an era of gracious living."

If you're visiting South Australia on a weekend and love history, we encourage you to put Goolwa Museum on your list and enjoy viewing this Granite on display and many other historical things that @National Trust - South Australia kindly offer.
