Restoration works at the Tuggeranong Schoolhouse: significance of site

Built in the 1880s, the Tuggeranong Schoolhouse site is one of the earliest public schoolhouses constructed in the ACT. It provides an excellent example of late 19th century school architecture and evidence of early rural public school life. The school provided an important link between the educational and social values of its regional community.

Tuggeranong Schoolhouse was attended by Professor James McGee, who went on to be a pioneer in television and nuclear physics research.
