Unveiling of the Nash Memorial

The ceremony of the unveiling of the Nash Memorial was held on Saturday 6 March 1915 outside the Town Hall. It was also a functional water drinking fountain. It was moved to the Reef St Monkland St corner of Memorial Park when the intersection of the Fiveways was upgraded.


Money had been raised for the Memorial from Gympie residents. You can find out more on Trove at http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspapers
