South Coast Leisure Times : Summer 15-2016
Gone are the days of driving through a town without properly appreciating the historical significance of what you are looking at. Berry has long been the town of trees, the place people visit on the weekend for the cafes, antique shops and sourdough bread. Howeve r, what people probably don’t realise is that Berry is a town steeped in history and packed with historically significant buildings. Those willing to check out just how interesting Berry’s historical buildings are need look no further than the Berry Museum. The museum wasbuiltfortheES&ABankin Scottish Baronial style in 1888, to a design by William Wardell, the well-known architect of St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney. Open on Saturday 11am to 2pm, Sunday 11am to 3pm and weekdays during school holidays 11am to 2pm, the museum has six rooms of displays about the history of Berry and the surrounding district. Here the volunteers will provide you with maps and all you need to navigate Berry either by car or on foot. It is on foot that you can really appreciated Berry’s historic beauty. You can easily take 45 minutes out of shopping time to take a walk down Prince Alfred Street to view the historic houses and visit the Berry Rural Co-operative that was previously Berry Central Creamery. Although milk and butter are no longer processed here, the co- operative houses a range of other shops including the Treat Factory. If you are a church fan, you are spoiled for choice, with Berry boasting four historical places of worship. The pick of the churches is St Luke’s Church of England with its restored rectory, which was built in 1892. On the corner of Alexander Street opposite the station is War Memorial Park, home to the cenotaph, which is approached by an avenue of eucalypts and brush box, each in memory of a fallen serviceman. The park and cenotaph were refurbished in the 1990s and the cannon is a relic from World War I. The war memorial comes alive during annual Anzac Day celebrations, when the town gathers to remember the fallen. No visit to Berry is complete without a visit to the showground and its grandstand, which was built in timber in time for the 1893 show. Almost everything in Berry is within walking distance, so grab a map, visit the Berry Museum and see for yourself why the town is such a popular tourist drawcard.
