Mulgoa’s heritage will benefit from a state government grant of $127,000.

It’s one of 40 new heritage projects to share in $2 million.

The grant was awarded to the Sydney Anglican Schools Corporation for essential conservation works to the sandstone exterior of the State Heritage Register-listed St Thomas Anglican Church.

The money came through the Major Works Program, the flagship program for NSW Heritage Grants; which assists owners and managers of State Heritage Register-listed items to conserve, restore and reuse their heritage properties

The St Thomas’ site was originally granted to the Anglican Church in 1831 by William Cox for use as a church and school.
