Historic buildings restored for show
ALMOST a year after Roslyn Gregor fought to save the 100-year-old former seamstress building and the old community health building at Nanango Hospital from being demolished, new life has been breathed into the buildings.
In May last year Nanango Hospital was ready to have the two buildings demolished and one of the buildings has been restored.
The building was used for the first time after being moved from the Nanango Hospital to the showgrounds at the Nanango Show on Saturday.
"All I can say is that it's a lovely building to have a new home at the showgrounds,” she said.
"They will be put to good use here.”
The building was used for a private function at the show on Saturday and Mrs Gregor said it would be put to good use at the showgrounds and used for meetings for the Nanango Show Society.
Mrs Gregor said she was happy to be able to preserve a couple of pieces of Nanango's history.
"They are great additions to these showgrounds that are already the best in Queensland,” she said.
