Historic clock for Murwillumbah
THE hands of time are set to become a major historical feature in Murwillumbah when an historic clock is mounted outside the town’s museum.
Tweed residents with a passion for the district’s history flocked to the 50th anniversary of the local history society on Sunday and were among the first to officially hear of plans to resurrect one of the town’s earliest outside clocks.
Murwillumbah Historical Society president Ron Johansen said the clock, originally owned by one of the Tweed’s most colourful pioneer’s, Uncle Ernie Newell, would soon be erected on a high pedestal outside the Murwillumbah museum in Queensland Road where it is intended to become known as the Museum Clock.
