• Collection Planning at Glenbarr

    May 7, 2013

A week or so ago I was pleased to be invited back to Glenbarr, an historic property and museum at Strathalbyn, to help review the Friends of Glenbarr Inc’s strategic plan.  The Friends of Glenbarr look after the day to day management of the extensive site, which is a popular group campsite and function venue, as well as the original Glenbarr Homestead and contents.

While there I got to see the room of the Homestead that the group hopes to turn into a collection storeroom.  Sure it doesn’t look like much of a space now, but the roof is sound and the room is in a handy location, so with a new floor, some stone work, lining and insulation the group is hopeful of making it work.  It will be a significant achievement when they do!
