OBERON District Museum members were saddened to hear of the recent death of Ernest Robinson, a major benefactor of the museum.

Ernest contributed much to the development of the Oberon museum. He attended the first meeting which set up the museum in 1989 and he remained a very active member for many years.

He donated the blacksmith’s shed in its entirety, organising its removal from Melville Park and its reconstruction in the museum grounds.
