Elliston creating heritage list

THE Elliston District Council is exploring the possibility of formally recognising the heritage value of its original council chambers and the old Port Elliston Cemetery. 

Elliston District Council chairman Kym Callaghan said the council had realised for a while it did not have any heritage listings. 

Mr Callaghan said the council was looking to upgrade the Port Elliston Cemetery, which had graves of early settlers and politicians.

He said getting the original chambers and the cemetery listed was the first step to having other significant sites listed. 

Mr Callaghan said the council, with the Elliston Visitor Information Centre wanted to see if community members would be interested in finding more heritage sites. 

“We want to get these sites listed and then see if there is a group of people out there who would be interested in helping the council create a heritage register,” he said. 

“This is the starting point, we are asking the visitor information centre if they would like to help form a working party or committee to research and come back to council with ideas for other sites.”
