Partial Restoration

 When the 19th century Glengallan Homestead came to be preserved in the early 21st century the most important thing was to stabilise the building. This meant that minimal restoration was done and lots of conservation. In many ways that makes the building even more interesting. You can see its underpinnings in many places. Part of the reason for this approach was financial, no doubt, but it has been a great success in my opinion. The model in the window serves to show visitors what the complex looked like in its heyday.
