Visitors to Catholic Healthcare's Blakeney Lodge aged care home in Tumut will see local history on display with two newly-painted murals on either side of the front door.

The adjoining murals were painted by local artist Bev Dennis. The left mural depicts native animals and the right mural is a large painting showing two farmers huts in the nearby Snowy Mountains.

Cecil Miller, who was a resident at Blakeney Lodge and lived to the age of 103, is painted next to one of the huts.

The Tumut and Adelong Times has featured a story on the murals -read the article here - https://tatimes.com.au/blakeney-lodge-mural-commemorates-huts-history/?fbclid=IwAR3J45QQVxCJeGcIkUMEFXdkceXcxITyeCfoZ_IaTV3cngcRfMcejyOOtG8
