Frescati house open this Saturday

THERE will be an open day at historic Frescati House in New Norfolk this Saturday as part of the Tasmanian Heritage Festival.

The Friends of Frescati will welcome visitors to the house and surrounding garden from 11am-3pm, providing a rare opportunity to see inside the building.

Frescati is a weatherboard house built by Colonial Secretary John Burnett in 1834. The Friends are particularly keen to collect memories of the house and its surroundings. Any photos and memorabilia will be particularly welcome.

Frescati is off The Avenue at Willow Court. Admission will be by gold coin donation. The Friends of Frescati also welcome new volunteers to help with the heritage garden around the house.
