About the Event
Join us for a CBD walking tour of buildings connected to local building firm Wallace and McGee.
From the mid-1920s to the early 1980s Wallace & McGee was at the centre of the construction industry in Western NSW and was responsible for the building of most of the iconic buildings throughout our community.
Led by our Local Studies Officer, this tour will look at some of the remaining buildings designed and constructed by Wallace and McGee and discuss the history of the company.
Always adaptive and responsive, Wallace & McGee would expand to become a company that could grow the timber, mill it, frame it up and install it, and they would take on not only building the family home, but the local hotel, army base, school, community pool.
The tour will commence from the Western Plains Cultural Centre.
