Tempe House During Restoration

These photos where taken during the restoration of Tempe House and the Chapel and the grounds around the house. Included are three showing the murals that were discovered under layers of old paint on the walls of the chapel. The work carried out by all those trademan is unbelievable especially if you had been fortunate enough to see Tempe House when it was open to the public back during the 1990's. We are still waiting for the new owners to open the house and chapel to the public now that the restoration work is complete. We were hoping that it would be during Heritage Week 2008 but that does not look like happening, maybe later on this year we will see Tempe House in all its glory.
We do hope you enjoy these photo's and that they have wetted your appetite to get you to see Rockdale Cities greatest treasure.
