Archives on tour
A focus on regional NSW
MHNSW engages across the state through our Regional Network and touring exhibitions. Archives on tour is another way to focus on regional NSW. Archives on tour began in 2019 with the 1828 Census touring a number of towns recorded in the Census.
Archives in your town is the second Archives on tour program and virtually takes parts of six of the big series of archives that cover the whole state to six different towns across NSW.
Schools are often the centre of a town and reflect the good times and bad times but also the fun times like days off for the local show. They reflect the culture and location of the town - early finishes so the children can help with the milking or more pupils attending while the railway is built nearby. Teachers move from school to school frequently and their leave records can provide many details about their lives.
