In 2015 Bathurst, NSW, celebrated its 200th anniversary. The ‘Bathurst 200’ website is no longer available but it seems to have been archived by the Wayback Machine and the National Library of Australia.
On 10 May 2015 Callum and I attended an event in Bathurst that was part of the anniversary. We drove up the day before and stayed at the Quality Hotel, Bathurst. That night we walked around the city centre and had a look at the light-show and the displays prepared for the event, including one for our ancestor, Richard Mills (c1780-1850).
On the following morning we had a look at the house built by Richard Mills around 1820. It is at 7 Lee Street Kelso and is now occupied by the Rural Fire Service and formerly an Evans Shire Council building. Then we went to the Bicentennial Park heritage wall for the unveiling of a plaque. Then to Cheshire Barn, 8 Gilmour Street for a picnic and talks. After that Callum and I went to have a look at Holy Trinity Church which is where Richard Mills was buried.
I kept a copy of the programme.
