Description

This building was originally constructed for the National Bank of Australasia in 1903, after they decided the hessian and iron structure they were operating out of wasn’t quite secure enough. Would you leave your money in a bank made from hessian?

The more solid structure was built after some opportunistic robbers, took advantage of the not so secure premise, and ran off with the equivalent of $800 in today’s money. Ouch!

These days, the building plays a different but very important role in our town as our Information Centre and Library.

The Information Centre is open Monday to Friday, 9am – 4.30pm and is full of information on the area.

Pop in and enjoy a cuppa and a browse.

This building is also the first stop on the Leonora Heritage Trail!
