Maryborough Open House dates set for September

THE date has been set for Maryborough Open House 2016.

Now in its fifth year, the popular event will be held over the weekend of September 24-25.

On the Saturday, Maryborough's architectural gems will be on show and on the Sunday, the gardens will be open for locals and visitors to explore.

Since its inception in 2012, the event has become the state's premier heritage

architecture event.

Each year about 30 historic buildings are open to the public free of charge.

Open House chairperson George Seymour said the event had grown and brought many visitors to the Heritage City.

"Maryborough has a wealth of heritage-listed buildings. These buildings help to tell the history of the city in a very tangible way," Mr Seymour said.

"In the past four years the event has included many aspects including an archaeological excavation, restoration workshops and church-bell ringing classes," he said.

"In 2015 we added a second day, an Open Gardens day, which was extremely

popular."

Building and garden owners who would like to take part in the event can call Mr Seymour on 0448 183 372.
